I remember my mother reading me Rumpelstiltskin as a child. It’s a strange, weird little story, but I always liked it. A father brags his daughter can turn straw into gold and then must make good on his boast. A mysterious little man appears and offers his services to make it happen, but for a price.
In the book from my childhood, the man dances around a fire singing “tonight my cake I bake, tonight my beer I make, tomorrow and tommorrow and tommorrow, the Queen’s little baby I take.” Could such an awful thing happen? Would he REALLY take the Queens baby? And what about the girl? And her father? Ok, enough of the cheesy TV cliffhanger lingo.
