Ms. Stacey Starley was especially helpful, and I want to say a big thank you to her, for setting everything up for me, and for the tasty lunch she got for me afterwards.
Oh, and here I am, in a Wasatch Elementary Wildcats t-shirt! Thanks so much, everyone at Wasatch Elementary in Ogden!!

|Spindle (c) 2015 W. R. Gingell|
I am a sucker for well-written, clean fantasy, and I especially like it when there's a healthy bit of humor thrown in as well!
Spindle has all of that.
Polyhymnia or Poly for short, was a fantastic character, and I truly admired her. She was spunky, thought for herself, and could take care of herself if need be. Not your typical damsel in distress, for sure!
I liked Luck, the hero. He was quite sure of himself, but not overpowering, and he was very pragmatic. He and Polly were wonderfully entertaining together. And Onepiece was absolutely adorable! So cute, smart, and protective of Poly. Onepiece starts out as a puppy, but then... Well you'd have to read the book for yourself.
Spindle was a very funny spinoff of the idea of Sleeping Beauty, and how her troubles didn’t end when she woke up from her long nap. In reality, they were actually beginning!
I heartily recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fantasy, especially fantasy with women who can stand on their own two feet and make their own decisions, without needing to have a man to motivate them, or tell them what to do!
Spindle is a great book! Loved it, loved it!
