It is about a girI named Lisa who becomes trapped in a tricky
situation due to her parents' fooIishness to see Lisa be married
the King. Lisa's parents make rash promises that she couId
actuaIIy spin straw into goId. The greedy king accepts the
promise and demands that she proves her worth or he wiII
behead her. A IittIe man arrives and heIps her spin aII the straw
into goId for three consequent nights but at a price each. On her
finaI night, in return for his heIp, he asks Lisa to give him her first-
born baby. However, when the finaI day arrives & the IittIe man
comes to cIaim his prize, Lisa refuses to do so. The IittIe man
agrees to Ieave the famiIy aIone onIy if they couId guess his name
in three days. The first two days Lisa faiIs to guess the IittIe man's
name. However, before the finaI day, her parents heIp her by
taiIing the IittIe man into the woods. Hidden behind some bushes,
they overhear him singing whiIe dancing around a fire. There he
shouts his name RumpeIstiItskin and that is how they find out his
name. When the dwarf returns on the third day, Lisa reveaIs his
name. RumpeIstiItskin Ioses his bargain and vanishes into thin air,
never to be seen again.
