Rump: The True Story of Rumpelstiltskin
by Liesl Shurtliff
Did you ever wonder why Rumpelstiltskin offered to spin straw into gold for the miller’s daughter? Or why he would accept her jewelry when he could clearly make his own? Or even why he had her guess his name? These questions and so much more are answered in this great extended version of the original fairy tale. Told from Rump’s point of view, we learn so much more about who he was and why he did what he did, as well as the importance of names and destiny. An excellent fantasy adventure!
