Answer to Monday's Riddle: Tricky Gold!

Excellent guessing, Riddlers! This week we're turning straw into gold. Margo has a children's picture book to share that will keep you spinning, so stay tuned! See you all around the book block. ; ) ~ F

A child is my desire, hands to clean and stoke the fire. I peer into shadow light and hear a woman's woeful plight. Skip a jig on little legs! I've found a basket with some eggs! She can't do what's she's told, but the king insists he wants his gold. Should she fail, end is near. For a trade, I'll spare her tear.  I'll dance right in and spin the stuff, then take what's mine soon enough. 

Can you guess my name? Answer: Rumpelstiltskin!
