Rumpelstiltskin book.

Under the name Ed McBain, he authored the sprawling 87th Precinct series-the longest, most varied crime series in the world-which includes fifty-five novels about a fictional team of policemen, and thirteen novels in the Matthew Hope series featuring an up-and-coming lawyer in the Florida Gulf Coast.

The third Matthew Hope mystery novel from the acclaimed author of the popular 87th Precinct series. When Victoria Miller and her backing band, Wheat, broke out with a string of gold records in the sixties, the sultry chanteuse seemed shy of crowds, refusing to perform in public. Years after her last success, Victoria makes her stage debut, but the magic is long gone, and shortly after that, so is she-the victim of a brutal murder.

Generally, I like to read a series of books in sequence. I read McBain's The Last Best Hope last year, not knowing it was part of a series. It really was "the best" and I hope it isn't the last. So -- I ran right out and bought as many of the earlier books as I could. This one, Rumpelstiltskin is, well, just OK. I'm almost finished and I'm only reading it until the end because I don't like to start a new one until I've finished what I'm reading. Frankly, the story is not engaging enough to keep me all that interested. The characters and dialogue, like all of McBain's characters and dialogue are interesting, but the story -- this is the first time I've read a murder mystery where I hardly care whodunit.
If you have not found this series of hard back fairy tales, you are missing out. They appear to be for the most part the original version of the stories along with some great illustrations in nice hard back binding.
Rumpelstiltkin was one of my favorite stories from childhood. I'm not sure why, but most likely because all works out in the end for the Queen. Galdone's version mostly stays faithful to the original German fairy tale. The illustrations are drawn in thin black ink and colored with watercolors. I became interested in the original tale once again after readingRump: The True Story of Rumpelstiltskin. Compared with many illustrated books today, it seems to lack vibrancy. For me, though, the drawings give it an old fashion feel that enhances the sensation of longevity of this long passed down tale.

The read-a-long CD is mediocre. The music, at times, especially in the beginning, overpowers the story rather than giving it a mood and bringing the story to life. As a librarian, I sometimes use books with CDs to give my voice a rest. Unfortunately, I'm probably going to have to skip using the CD because of the slow pace of the narrator. I found myself skipping ahead in the book and then waiting for the CD to catch up.

The CD has two versions of the story; one with page turn signals and one without. The page turn signals tend to slow things down just a bit. However, the good news is that the CD comes with a bonus story: Tailypo. I already have this story on tape along with the book. I LOVE that story and so do my students. It's not for children under 6 in my opinion as it can be frightening. However, my middle grade students love this suspenseful and creepy story. Not a peep out of the group when I present the book and story on tape/CD to them. I would recommend buying the book too. Including Tailypo on the CD bumped my rating to four stars.
Interesting look at the efffects of a broken marriage and the way the children and the spouses are intertwined vis a vis a murder case...the hero, Matthew Hope, has to deal with several ancillary crises while trying to help his client, who has been accused of murder.
Good gift for a granddaughter.
Great book!
I love this series. If you need an escape in winter, go see Hope. I only wish he had better luck with women.
Love the book and illustrator. Product came quickly and was in great shape.
