Paul Galdone’s striking retelling and spirited illustrations give new life to Grimm’s classic tale of a strange little man who helps the miller’s daughter spin straw into gold. Now a big book—perfect for sharing at storytime!
When a miller tells the king that his daughter can spin straw into gold, the king locks her up to await his treasure. Suddenly, a strange little man appears, offering to carry out her task—but he demands payment. She finally promises him something most precious, and years later, he comes back to claim his due.
Paul Galdone’s fluid storytelling brings new life to this familiar tale. The large trim size makes this an ideal choice for reading aloud with little ones.
"It's like hearing a brand-new story in the master's words and vivid scenes." Publishers Weekly
