Rump: The True Story of Rumpelstiltskin / Liesl Shurtliff

A twist on the traditional fairy tale of Rumpelstiltskin, Rump tells the story of a 12-year-old boy named Rump who discovers his magical ability to spin straw into gold.  With his new power comes new twists and traps, and soon Rump finds himself in the predicament of having the queen’s firstborn child promised to him.  Painting the well-known Rumpelstiltskin character and story in a new, fresh way, Rump is an interesting twist on a well-known Grimms’ fairy tale.  Recommended for readers ages 8-12, especially those who are fans of fairy-tale adaptations.
