Boots saves his father's fields from the ravages of the trolls' wild stallions, and with their help, he rides up the glass mountain and wins the princess's hand.From School Library Journal:
Grade 2-4-- The tradition of the romantic fairy tale is richly upheld in this version of a Norwegian story from the classic 3 collection by Asbjornsen and Moe. Martin modernizes and shortens the story, changing Cinderlad to a boy named Boots, and adding a troll king to explain the origin of the glass mountain, but the plot and the flow of language are close to the original. Braver than his boastful older brothers, young Boots three times withstands the magic powers of the trolls and three times wins a fine steed. When the hand of the king's daughter is offered to any knight who can ride to the top of the glass mountain, Boots succeeds while the others fail, and is rewarded by the princess with three golden apples. In a pleasant reversal of the Cinderella story, the kingdom is searched for the apples, and ragged Boots is recognized as the golden knight. Spirin's elaborate illustrations, like medieval tapestries, sparkle with jewellike colors and are arranged within bordered pages decorated in the style of illuminated manuscripts. They perfectly suit the medieval costumes and antique theme of the story in which a princess, prettily perched on her glass mountain, waits to be carried off by a handsome knight. --Shirley Wilton, Ocean County College, Toms River, NJ
