This is a retelling of Rumpelstiltskin that combines all the magical elements of the original with other German folklore. 18-year-old Serilda is a gifted storyteller, and also is known as the girl with the “wheel spoke” eyes. She is shunned by most villagers except the children she helps teach. One night, she helps save forest creatures from the evil Erlking who is on the prowl. When she is caught, she convinces him she can spin straw into gold. She faces almost certain death, but will her penchant for telling fantastical stories help her escape?
