It was a boast that would have terrible consequences. Once upon a time, when a miller met the King, he proudly announced that his beautiful daughter had a special talent: she could actually spin straw into gold. That caught His Majesty's attention immediately; unfortunately, it wasn't true. Yet the poor girl's life depended on completing this impossible task. How could she ever succeed?
Only with the help of a strange little man with a magical touch. But he exacted a dreadful promise in return?
With lyricism and grace, John Cech retells this suspenseful story, and provides fascinating background on its origins. Martin Hargreaves offers richly elaborate artwork that truly captures the characters' personalities and their far-away fairy-tale world.
