Publisher's Summary

Actress Kathleen Turner narrates this popular Grimm's fairy tale in which a king tells a young woman that she must spin a roomful of straw into gold by morning, or die. To complete this impossible task, she is forced to promise her firstborn child to a mysterious little man in return for his gold-spinning ability. Years later, he returns to claim what is his, only to find that he has underestimated the power of a mother's love. Music by Tangerine Dream underscores this haunting and heartfelt retelling of the classic German tale. Ages six and up. Part of the award-winning Rabbit Ears series, We All Have Tales.

Gem of a Find, or Maybe a Golden Thread of Joy

I stumbled across this book as I was looking for something interesting. Rumplestiltskin is one of my all-time favorite stories, so I listened to a preview. I had no idea that Kathleen Turner did narration, so it was a surprise. Performance of this story is PERFECT! I have listened to this story almost every day since. My beau and I even tease each other with some of the names she guesses in the story. This is an all-ages performance and story, so we adults can get a lot of joy from listening.
