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.

Contributor Bio(s): Galdone, Paul: -

Paul Galdone was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1907 and emigrated to the United States in 1928. After finishing his studies at the Art Student League and the New York School of Industrial Design, Mr. Galdone worked in the art department of a major publishing house. There he was introduced to the process of bookmaking, an activity that was soon to become his lifelong career. Before his death in 1986, Mr. Galdone illustrated almost three hundred books, many of which he himself wrote or retold. He is fondly remembered for his contemporary style, bright earthy humor, and action-filled illustrations, which will continue to delight for generations to come.

Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2014 Spring)
These four books appear in uniform paper-over-board editions. Galdone was a refreshingly modest illustrator: his retellings are straightforward and his unassumingly loose-lined, color-separated pictures provide just enough embellishment. Plenty of white space gives the stories all the room they need. [Review covers these Folk Tale Classic titles: Cinderella, Henny Penny, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rumpelstiltskin.]

Reviewed by Publishers Weekly Reviews (PW Reviews 1990 May #1)
Of this stylish retelling, PW said, ``it's like hearing a brand-new story in Galdone's words and vivid scenes.'' Ages 3-6. (Apr.) Copyright 1990 Cahners Business Information.
