Rumpelstiltskin

by Paul O. Zelinsky Illustrated by Paul O. Zelinsky

This inventive and splendid retelling of a favorite tale of a girl who must trust a strange creature to help her spin straw into gold, features richly hued oil paintings that evoke a medieval world. "Zelinsky's smooth retelling and glowing pictures cast the story in a new and beautiful light." — SLJ
