I love a twist on a classic tale. Today we have retellings of Rumpelstiltskin for all ages. I wouldn't count Rumpelstiltskin as one of my favorite fairy tales, but this post of Rumpelstiltskin retellings truly contains some of my all-time favorite books. What fairy tale would you like to see retold?

In a world where a name defines a destiny, Rump is stuck being a cow’s behind. When he was born, his mother died before she could tell anyone but him his full name, and so he is stuck being Rump. He discovers that he has magic and it sets him on a path that leads to his name and destiny. Rump: The True Story of Rumpelstiltskin is pure fun. Liesl Shurtliff created a fascinating world with gnomes who run messages and pixies who are attracted to gold (much like the king of the land). I love that Rump’s only friend is Red, whose name is considered as odd as his and that people are the only things named. Rump was a romp and I enjoyed every minute.
