5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful presentation of a famous tale. 2 Jun 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This is a retelling of the famous children's "fairy" tale, first presented by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm in the early 19th century. A young mother has to guess a gnome's name (he had been spinning straw into gold for her) in order to prevent him from taking her new-born babe. This book was a 1987 Caldecott Honor book (i.e., a runner-up to the Medal winner) for best illustrations in a book for children. Paul Zelinsky did considerable research to follow the original version of the tale and his art reflects the time period of the story. It is a beautiful book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Illustrations! Great text! 27 Nov 1998
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This is a terrific version of the classic story. The illustrations are captivating and the text is wonderful. The Rumpelstiltskin character is a funny little man who rides around on a spoon. If you've ever seen it read on PBS' "Storytime" you'll know what I mean. We checked this book out at the library when my daughter was about 5 years old and we liked it so much that even though she's now 11, she wants to get it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Leave Home Without It! 6 Feb 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This retelling of Rumplestiltskin has fabulous illustrations (especially those depicting the gold) and is wonderfully told. It also manages to make the flaws in the original story (the rupulsiveness of the "king") less gruesome. Don't leave home without it (our family, whose youngest member is fifteen, is about to buy a second copy)!
