    This Rumpelstiltskin version was a spin of the traditional tale in which it kept similar elements but strayed from the plot toward the end. The bones of the plot are the same with the Miller claiming his daughter can spin gold for the king to repay his debts. I found it because I wanted to read a graphic novel version of the tale so I searched it at the library. It was modern in its illustrations and bordered on scary so would recommend it more for older readers.

The bones of the plot are the same with the Miller claiming his daughter can spin gold for the king to repay his debts. I found it because I wanted to read a graphic novel version of the tale so I searched it at the library. It was modern in its illustrations and bordered on scary so would recommend it more for older readers. It would appeal to perhaps readers who struggle because it was engaging with modern illustrations, strong visuals, and a sinister science fiction type look to it. The author also write science fiction books so that is coming out in the fairy tale twist. The story remains the same when the girl gives Rumpelstiltskin a ring and then a necklace when he helps her trick the prince and spin the gold. However, the story strays from the original when the king falls in love with her at the end and wants her to be his queen. He says he kept her spinning the gold because he was in love with her. She agrees because of his "kind heart." I didn't agree with this since the Prince held her prisoner her to spin gold for him. Although, he did say he would give the gold to the poor if she would be his queen, I do not think it is a good message to send to young girls. The Prince was not a hero as the graphic novel spun him to be.

    This graphic tale suffers the same fate at the Beauty and the Beast version. The story is extra short and the illustrations are either very flat or so crammed into one page that the action gets confusing. Out of the whole series this is my least favorite and honestly not very popular in our library. The kids are drawn to the sinister cover but they really don't like the story and a few thought it was too scary. (I work in an Elementary library) I would recommend this for ages 8 and up.

    This was the most interesting version of Rumpelstiltskin that I had read. It was in a graphic novel form with images that were a bit scarier than the Rumpelstiltskin I have seen before. The illustrator made sure the image of him was scary and mean. The other characters, named King Konrad and Mirabelle were drawn in a different style (almost like anime but also cartoony). There are some parts of the traditional story that were different such as King Konrad's proposal to Mirabelle as well as Mirab This was the most interesting version of Rumpelstiltskin that I had read.

The other characters, named King Konrad and Mirabelle were drawn in a different style (almost like anime but also cartoony). There are some parts of the traditional story that were different such as King Konrad's proposal to Mirabelle as well as Mirabelle going to hunt down Rumpelstiltskin's name on her own. In every other version someone else has done that part for the Queen. At the end Rumpelstiltskin suffers quite a death where it looks like he melts away as Queen Mirabelle reveals to him how she discovered his name. The images are very vibrant and detailed, taking over much of the page. This is a version of Rumpelstiltskin that I would recommend to older elementary/middle school kids due to the images and the story itself it tells. Very interesting though!

    This adaptation of the story is a graphic novel and is written for grades three through six. It is the same story of Daniel the miller who is the father of Mirabelle owes the King money and gives his daughter to spin straw into gold to pay off his debt. As a traditional folktale past down from generations, but being written as a graphic novel the illustrations gives it a nice twist. I believe students who would not normally read this story, maybe boys would be more interested in reading it in th This adaptation of the story is a graphic novel and is written for grades three through six.

    In our textbook, they discussed how the flat characters and strong plot make traditional literature so successful. This story proved it to me.

The girl bargains with her necklace and ring for the first two nights. The last night she does not know what she is agreeing to, but does anyway. The king claims he kept her there not for the gold, but because he loved her. Rumpelstiltskin shows up for her child and gives her a chance to guess his name. She follows him into the forest and discovers him name. When he returns she immediately tell hims his name. There is a lot of extra stuff and information in this version that really took away from the story. I did not enjoy the illustrations. I did not think they were very well done. They looked computer generated and busy. There was way too much going on. Graphic novels usually have some kind of organization that prevents you from getting overwhelmed - that did not happen in this version.

    CC has discovered what she calls the "fairytale section" of my library and has increased our TBR pile by about thirty books. This was the first, part of Stone Arch's Graphic Spin series, and she wasn't particularly impressed. I think the illustrations were a little jumbled for her. I do like this series, though, and have enjoyed others that I have read. CC has discovered what she calls the "fairytale section" of my library and has increased our TBR pile by about thirty books.
