William and the Witch's Riddle

(2016)
A novel by

 
A charming reimagining of Sleeping Beauty that "will appeal to younger middle grade readers who like fantasy, fractured fairy tales, and adventure" (School Library Journal)!

William and his little brother, Pinch, have been left alone at their home atop the mountain. When a witch named Morga shows up, William is forced to embark on a terrifying journey, the worst part of which is Morga herself. She has three riddles for William to solve, with only the help of an odd fellow who wakes up a different size every day and a tiny yellow dragon who can dream storms into reality.

Three riddles.
Three chances to lift an ancient curse.
Three chances to save his family.

Part fantasy and part fairy tale, and sprinkled with charming black-and-white illustrations, William and the Witch's Riddle is a loose retelling of Sleeping Beauty and an adventure that's just right for middle graders.

Praise for Shutta Crum's Thomas and the Dragon Queen:

"Both heartwarming and full of surprises. . . . A must-read." - School Library Journal, Starred review

"The quick pace, thrilling escapes, and subtly detailed medieval setting will all be appealing to early fantasy readers." - The Bulletin

"A sure-fire hit as a read-aloud, this is an engaging book featuring a hero filled with bravery, quick wits, and heart." - The Horn Book
