PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Rump: the True Story of Rumpelstilskin by Liesl Shurtliff is a great fractured fairy tale for upper elementary students. Shurtliff turns the classic character of Rumpelstiltskin into a sympathetic protagonist an adventure to break a curse and discover his true name. It’s a funny story with a wide cast of likeable characters, while including thought-provoking themes like friendship, greed, and bullying.

I highly recommend it to students that enjoyed Fortunately, the Milk by Neil Gaiman, Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library by Chris Grabenstein or any fractured fairy tales.

This book makes a wonderful novel unit for the whole class or for small reading groups. It works well with fourth and fifth grade independent reading levels and can be easily used as a read aloud or for advanced literature circles in third grade.

This novel unit includes:


• Chapter Comprehension Checks with answer key (CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL. 3.1, 4.1, 4.3, 5.1)
