Marathon County Public Library MCPL's Reviews > Rump: The True Story of Rumpelstiltskin
by Liesl Shurtliff (Goodreads Author)
bookshelves: childrens, tween, mcpl-review, todo
What’s in a name? Everything. Rump has endured endless criticism for his name, which he knows is not complete since his mother died before she could proclaim his full name. After discovering accidentally that he could spin straw into much-needed gold, he leaves his mountain village on a quest to find lost relatives and hopefully discover his full name and heritage. Narrated by the main character, this extension of a classic fairytale is amusing and maintains interest until the end. It will be enjoyed by all ages, but is recommended for children ages 8-12.
