"Rumpelstiltskin" is a German fairy tale. It was collected by the Brothers Grimm in the 1812 edition of Children's and Household Tales. The story is about an imp who spins straw into gold in exchange for a girl's firstborn.
In a very basic sense, Rumpelstiltskin in the actual stories always asked for the girl's child in return for spinning straw into gold, which her father had foolishly (and publicly) boasted she could do. ... At the risk of sounding corny, children are the future, they're our hope for immortality.
Ladybird brings together characters from well-loved children's TV shows such as Peppa Pig, In the Night Garden, Ben and Holly and the lively twosome Topsy and Tim; plus a whole host of fairy tale favourites like Cinderella and Pinocchio.
Sharing a Ladybird story with your child is a great way to start exploring the big, wide world. Whether they're discovered through snuggly bedtime favourites, buggy books that accompany adventures or fun apps for playtime, really great stories open up whole new worlds and spark imagination, creativity and curiosity.
