Tonight, for our monthly Snoozecast+ Deluxe bonus episode, we’ll read a Snoozecast Original, inspired by the Brothers Grimm tale “Rumpelstiltskin”.

In this reimagined version, a country miller’s daughter is thrust into the realm of kings and gnomes due to her father’s loud boasts. Greta must navigate royal demands and mystical deals to protect what is most precious to her.

The tale of Rumpelstiltskin, with its origins steeped in European folklore, has been captivating audiences for centuries. First formally recorded by the Brothers Grimm in the early 19th century, the narrative explores the motifs of bargaining and naming, language and promises.
