Rump: The True Story of Rumpelstiltskin by New York Times Bestselling Author, Liesl Shurtliff. This book is a modern spin on the classic Rumpelstiltskin. With his best friend Red Riding Hood Rump discovers he has a gift of spinning straw into gold, although he finds out this magical gift may not be a gift after all….in fact it is more of a curse.
This new spin on Rumpelstiltskin helps teach about perspectives and that there are more than one side to every tale. I would recommend this story to children 8 and older and especially those who like stories about courage, friendship, and magic.
