about

"Vande Velde's takes on this fairy tale are always humorous and often heartwarming."- Publishers Weekly, starred review &nbsp Have you ever wondered just what was going on when that odd little man with the long name stepped up and volunteered to spin straw into gold for the miller's daughter? If you stop and think about it, there are some very peculiar components to the story. &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp Vivian Vande Velde has wondered too, and she's come up with these six alternative versions of the old legend. A bevy of miller's daughters confront their perilous situation in very different ways-sometimes comic, sometimes scary, always unexpected.
Vivian Vande Velde  has written many highly acclaimed books for teen and middle grade readers, including Three Good Deeds, Heir Apparent, Deadly Pink, and the Edgar Award-winning Never Trust a Dead Man. She lives in Rochester, New York. Visit her website at www.vivianvandevelde.com.

Editorial Reviews

* Vande Velde's takes on this fairy tale are always humorous and often heartwarming."- Publishers Weekly, starred review"An effective and amusing collection, with just the right amount of snappy sarcasm to snag the junior-high set."- Kirkus Reviews "These short variations on the story have a sly humor and a contemporary feeling. . . . will appeal most to fairy-tale fans who just can't get enough of the traditional genre."- School Library Journal "
