Read full description of the books:
In this traditional tale by the Brothers Grimm, a miller's daughter is asked to do the unthinkable by the king- spin straw into gold by the morning's light or she will die. When a strange little man comes to help her the first night, she gives him her beaded necklace, the second night, her ring, and on the third night she promises her firstborn child in exchange for his help. The miller's daughter is made queen because of her talent, has a baby and forgets all about the strange little man until he comes back one night requesting her child. She weeps and weeps until the man takes pity on her and makes her a bargain: If she can guess his name with in three days, she can keep her child.
Most of you know the ending to this story, but for a child hearing or reading it for the first time, it is filled with unknowns. Will she find out his name or will he take her child? While I grew up very familiar with Rumpelstiltskin, this story hasn't been as marketable in recent years as other fairytales, such as Cinderella or Little Red Riding Hood. It would be interesting to see what children today think of Rumpelstiltskin. Is he an evil trickster who may or may not want to have a baby for his supper, or is he a man who helped a girl in her time of need and now wants what is rightfully his?
This faithful translation illustrated by Bernadette Watts has a very romantic feel. Warm colors and soft features throughout allow the readers to go back to the time of magical creatures. Rumpelstiltskin isn't shown as a ugly troll, but a merry little elf with rosy cheeks. K-3 would enjoy this as a read aloud, while 2-5 could enjoy this independently.
