Summary/Annotation -> In a magical kingdom where your name is your destiny, 12-year-old Rump is the butt of everyone's joke. Rump has never known his full name--his mother died before she could tell him. So all his life he's been teased for his half-a-name. But when he finds an old spinning wheel, his luck seems to change. For Rump discovers he can spin straw into gold. Magical gold. His best friend Red Riding Hood warns him that magic is dangerous--and she's right! That gold is worth its weight in trouble. And with each thread he spins, Rump weaves himself deeper into a curse. There's only one way to break the spell: Rump must go on a quest to find his true name, along the way defending himself against pixies, trolls, poison apples, and one beautiful but vile-mannered queen. The odds aren't great for a small boy in a land full of fairytale bullies, but with courage and friendship--and a cheeky sense of humor--Rump just might triumph in the end.
