Rumpelstiltskin's Daughter

by Diane Stanley

Published by Morrow, 1997
32 pages
ISBN: 068814327X

Ages 4-8

Modern twists and wry asides embellish an original story based on the premise that the miller's daughter eventually fell in love and married Rumpelstiltskin ("...you'd make a good provider and I have a weakness for short men."). Years later, plagued once again by the same greedy king who demands to have straw spun into gold, their daughter manages to outwit him with a scheme that redistributes the wealth among the all the poor farmers in the kingdom, and ultimately satisfies the king as well. Guess what? They all live happily ever after! CCBC categories: Picture Books; Folklore, Mythology and Traditional Literature.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
