Written by The Brothers Grimm • Illustrated by Dennis Hockeman

Reviewed by Jamie Z. (age 8)

I am reviewing the book Rumplestiltskin. One day a miller told a king that his daughter could turn straw into gold. But she couldn't do it unless a dwarf helped her. He would only help her if she gave him her jewelry. One day the king said he would make her queen if she turned all the straw into gold. She then had to promise the dwarf her first born baby. She became queen and the dwarf came back for her baby. He told her she could keep the baby if she guessed his name in three days.

The best part of the book is when the queen guessed the dwarf's name. The pictures in this book are very bright and colorful. It is a nice book, especially when the girl becomes the queen.

I recommend this book because it is a fairy tale and fairy tales are magical.
