The Problems of Rumpelstiltskin for the book Rump by Liesl Shurtliff (Problem/Solution)
Rumps main problem in the story was that he didn't know his full name. The first example of solving this problem was when he went to his aunts house to see if any history there would give him a hint of his name. With triumph, he found out that part of his name was Rumple. He found this out by eavesdropping his aunts when they were talking at night. The were talking about his mother and how she was in a rumple. Which was explained as trapped. Once Rump figured that he's sorta in a rumple because he's trapped in his own magic forever.
Another example is hen he found out the second part of his name on page 242 in Rump. He found out that the second part of it was siltskin, because he thought about who he was. He was in a rumle and he was a stilskin. A stilskin was explained as a deep magic that grows inside you. That's when rump knew with TRIUMPH,that Rumpelstiltskin was his name.
With perseverance and ambition Rumpelstiltskin found out his name with pride on what he does.
