Rumpelstiltskin - Paul O. Zelinsky Back in those school days, years ago, we received books from school library when I was an absolute sucker for fairy-tales. But I guess, I am still the same as I still going back to this story every time that I can. Read it first time then and never returned the book and faked lost at school. Fined for losing school property but was happy yet. The book was so mesmerizing with lovely pictures in vibrant colors. But, more than that the story was beautiful. Don't remember how many times I must have read it after then. Some stories leave a mark in your memories, and this is one of them.
