Straw Into Gold
Audience: 6th Grade - 8th Grade
I found this book to be well-written and captivating although my curiosity about certain happenings had to wait to be satisfied. Twelve years after the miller claims his daughter can spin straw into gold, this is a continuation of the fairytale Rumpelstiltskin. Mr. Schmidt has added intrigue and fantasy in the story. Tousle and blind Innes must find the answer to this question posed by the king in an effort to save the rebels, 'What fills a hand fuller than a skein of gold?' They have seven days to find the answer. Their trip to find the queen has many obstacles that must be overcome. Da, the miller, the farmer, and his wife are interesting characters which are well-developed. Reading this book is an incredibly enjoyable process.
