Synopsis

Rumpelstiltskin by Mara Alperin

Poor Isabel! The king has locked her in a tower and ordered her to spin straw into gold. It's impossible! Then a mysterious, magical man appears, offering to help . . . But what does he want in return? My First Fairytales are a magical introduction to the well-loved stories that are a key part of every childhood. With fresh and fun illustrations, these simple re-tellings of classic fairy tales make a perfect read for young and old alike!

Reviews

With smatterings of word play and bright, jolly, richly patterned illustrations, this version has a modern feel to it. It's certainly one young audiences will be attracted to visually and they will enjoy the tension of the guessing game and its outcome in particular. * Jill R Bennett *
