In this fascinating African-American retelling of the Rumplestiltskin tale, a beautiful girl's mother brags to the king that her daughter can spin gold. The girl, horrified by her mother's lie, is forced into a room where she is told to fill it with gold. Just then, an ugly little creature appears and tells her he'll spin the gold if she can only guess his name.
