Have you ever noticed how many PROBLEMS there are with this story?
Ms. Velde certainly did, and she set about to fix these problems, with six imaginative and hilarious retellings of the story.
This is an extremely quick read, and extremely entertaining. I hope you'll do yourself the favor of reading this book. My favorite versions of this story are always the ones where the Miller's Daughter runs off with Rumpelstiltskin. Velde may have a couple of those--and other fun variations, as well.
