My Name is

That nasty-tempered wizard Rumpelstiltskin is back in this engaging adaptation. Griselda, a four-hundred-year-old witch, tells Rumpelstiltskin that in order to become the most powerful force in the kingdom, he must possess a child of royal birth. The wizard plots and schemes. He spreads the word that Laura, the miller’s daughter, can weave straw into gold. Since the kingdom is bankrupt, she’s whisked off to the palace and ordered to spin and spin. With Rumpelstiltskin’s help, she delivers the
gold. She has a high fee to pay — her firstborn child. When Laura marries the prince and produces an heir to the throne, she has twenty-four hours to guess the wizard’s name or lose her child.
