Narrator Maxwell Glick is as unflappable and nimble as Rump is in his quest to determine his true name and destiny. Listeners are treated to an expanded version of the well-loved folktale of Rumpelstiltskin, as told by the fellow himself. Listeners will find out who Rumpelstiltskin really is; meet his gran; hear the backstory of his parents, the greedy merchant/miller, and the gold-loving king; and experience a world of trolls, pixies, and witches. Glick’s Rump unfailingly projects his moods—curious, despondent, questioning, playful—as each juncture of the tale requires. His pacing is equally attuned to the story’s myriad twists. Glick’s narration moves along effortlessly, and supporting characters are full of personality. A.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2014]
