I'll admit it--this was poor planning on my part.

1) My Kids Book Club loves fairy tale retellings, and I'd heard good things about this book. But the main character's name (for most of the story) was unfortunate to hear a zillion times over the course of the novel in light of the past week's events.

2) I don't care much for fairy tale retellings.

3) I haven't been able to concentrate on any reading for the past week, so I resorted to the audio instead on this one, figuring it would at least push me along. The reader was awful though...male readers are often difficult for me anyway (geez, can you do a more terrible woman's voice?), but a male reader reading a middle grade novel (usually too cutesy) was too much. A lot of his character voices sounded like Jim Henson characters and not in an endearing way.

So what it just resulted in was me skipping ahead a bit (aided by the predictable plot) to get the main points of the novel. I've already heard from some of my kids in the book club that they loved/are loving this novel (it does have a mostly good message), so in the end I am glad I chose it. This was just the wrong time to read it. ( )

This was a very good book. It gave a nice backstory to the villain of Rumpelstiltskin, making him much less villainous. I never would have imagined him being friends with a bad-ass Red Riding Hood. Rump is a funny protagonist with a great view on the world around him. His quest to find himself and the rest of his name is imaginative, yet true to the original fairy-tale. I've always wondered how Rumpelstiltskin got his name, and this finally cleared it all up for me. ( )

There wasn't a lot of substance to this book, but it was cute, and thoroughly enjoyable anyways. I read it so long ago that I can't remember more than that though. Oops. ( )

12-year-old Rump is the butt of everyone's joke, until one day he comes across an old spinning wheel. He discovers he has a gift to spin straw into gold. Little does he know that every time he spins he weaves himself into a curse. His best friend Red (little red riding hood) tells him that magic is dangerous, so rump must go on a quest to break the curse. ( )

This fractured fairy tale recreates and expands on the story of Rumplestiltskin. He has always been called Rump because his mother died when he was born leaving him with only knowing part of his name, Rump. In his short twelve years, because of that name, he has been the victim of many jokes. Rump lives with his grandmother and times are hard when he finds his mother's old spinning wheel and feels that he must give spinning a try. He does so in spite of his grandmother's warnings not to touch the spinning wheel but to make it into firewood. To his amazement, he spins straw into gold and that is the beginning of his magical predicaments. Rump must find a way to escape the bindings of the magic that he has created so he sets out on a journey to find both his destiny and his true name because finding these things will free him from the magical spell.

This version of the Rumplestiltskin fairy tale should delight middle grade readers. The book is abounding with magic, mystery, trolls, pixies, villains, and all of the things that they will find irresistible in a story. Most important of all they will learn that "A name is a powerful thing". ( )
