The Rumpelstiltskin Problem by Vivian Vande Velde. The old tale of Rumpelstiltskin was full of plot holes: why did he want a human baby to begin with? And why would he exchange so much gold for one tiny ring?? This is Rumpelstiltskin retold several wonderfully hilarious ways that make absolute sense.

So, I bought this because it was written by an online stitching friend of mine. I have to admit, though, that once I started reading it I couldn't put it down. Great detail and storytelling. it's the Young Adult genre, but anyone will enjoy this unique retelling of Rumpelstiltskin. Looking forward to reading her other books (I'm already behind on that).
TRADITIONAL LITERATURE. this is a great book that could be used in the classroom with any grade. I have found a lot of lesson plans with fairy tale type stories that can be used with social studies. Of course you could do a lot of creative writing projects with it
