Book Review: Rump: The True Story of Rumpelstitskin

Summary: In a magic kingdom where your name is your destiny, 12-year-old Rump is the butt of everyone's joke. But when he finds an old spinning wheel, his luck seems to change. Rump discovers he has a gift for spinning straw into gold. His best friend, Red Riding Hood, warns him that magic is dangerous, and she’s right. With each thread he spins, he weaves himself deeper into a curse.
 To break the spell, Rump must go on a perilous quest, fighting off pixies, trolls, poison apples, and a wickedly foolish queen. The odds are against him, but with courage and friendship—and a cheeky sense of humor—he just might triumph in the end.

Thoughts: This was an adorable retelling of the age-old fairytale Rumpelstiltskin! Thoughtful characters, a simple but original plot, and a handful of magic wound around to make a sweet and humorous story! While a little thought provoking on occasion, it's over all an easy light read and has something there for readers of all ages!

Content: I think there might have been the slightest bit of crude humor involving some trolls but nothing offensive. This is a clean read and fun story for younger readers!
