RUMPLESTILTSKIN by Patricia- retold by Jones


Email this review


Like Helen Wing's books Rosalinda (1953) and The Lazy Lion (1954) this has the same attractive size and format. The book is long and slim, about 6"" by 10"" in size, well bound with a cloth spine and made with cardboard cutouts of Rumplestiltskin and the Queen at the back of the book. Patricia Jones' retelling is simplified but recognizable and Jan Balet has done imaginatively stylized pictures in primary colors.
