Rump: The True Story of Rumpelstiltskin By: Liesl Shurtliff

Rump hates his name very much, and we all know why. The kids are always teasing him about it.  Rump has had a hard life, living day to day in the mines so that his grandmother and him can eat. But when he finds a spinning wheel, and is able to make gold his luck begins to change.

I loved this retelling of the story of Rumpelstiltskin.  It was very clever, and will take young readers into the fairy tale quickly.  I liked how Rumpelstiltskin was not told as an evil character, like he is in some of the fairy tales, that he was just a normal boy with a talent that he thought could help him.

I purchased this book from Scholastic.
ISBN: 978-0-545-76586-2
