    This book gives you six different stories to answer all your questions about this silly fairy tale. Such as why did Rumpelstiltskin want a baby or why did the miller think it was a good idea to brag about his daughter being able to spin straw into gold?

    The Rumpelstiltskin Problem by Vivian Vande Velde. The old tale of Rumpelstiltskin was full of plot holes: why did he want a human baby to begin with? And why would he exchange so much gold for one tiny ring?? This is Rumpelstiltskin retold several wonderfully hilarious ways that make absolute sense.

The Crimson Thread: A Retelling of "Rumpelstiltskin" (Once Upon a Time Fairytales) by Suzanne Weyn

So, I bought this because it was written by an online stitching friend of mine. I have to admit, though, that once I started reading it I couldn't put it down. Great detail and storytelling. it's the Young Adult genre, but anyone will enjoy this unique retelling of Rumpelstiltskin. Looking forward to reading her other books (I'm already behind on that).
