    " Fun to use with discussion of folk tales. Great opportunities for discussing all kinds of tangential things---what does a miller do, recurring use of number 3, what does "alas" mean, different endings, and more. Frankly, I was surprised at how riveted so many of my students were with this one--I'd figured I might lose some of my boys--and admittedly, there was some eye rolling when I pulled out the book, but they fell right in. There are usually some gasps at the fact that the king threatens the miller's daughter with death if she doesn't spin the straw into gold. Great lead-in to some of the various versions of folk and fairy tales out there. "

    " This book is kind of rough to get through!!! I think this book could attract many students that love or enjoy magic! "

    " This book is so intriguing, yet so weird at the same time. As a child I remember really liking this story, but now I realize how the story was actually quite sexist and all of the men in the story treated the girl (I believe her name is Lisa) very poorly. The basic plot of the story is that the girl's father lies to the king and says that his daughter can spin straw into gold to try and impress him. The king takes her and locks her away and says that she must spin all of the straw into gold or else he will have her executed. Feeling helpless, the girl is about to give up until a strange little man comes and spins the straw into gold for her in exchange for her necklace, and then again for a second night in exchange for her ring. When she has nothing left he agrees to spin the straw into gold in exchange for her first born baby. She agrees. The king is impressed with what he believes her talent is, and marries the girl. She has a baby and as agreed the strange man comes back to claim his reward. The now queen offers to give him all of her riches if she can keep her newborn, and the man says she can keep her baby if she can guess his name in 3 days. His name is overheard when he is dancing through the forest and the queen guesses it correctly, getting to keep her baby. Quite a strange story, but perhaps intriguing because of the element of magic throughout and the escape of danger by the young girl. I think children would enjoy this book, especially as a read aloud for younger children because it can be a bit difficult to read. "

    " This story is another classic one of a young princess who is trapped away and a prince comes to save her! "
