Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Trapped in a tower with no door, Rapunzel is allowed to see no one but the sorceress who has imprisoned her — until the day a young prince hears her singing to the forest birds....The timeless tale of Rapunzel is vividly and magnificently brought to life through Paul O. Zelinsky's powerful sense of narrative and his stunning oil paintings.

Review:

"Zelinsky demonstrates a point established in his unusually complete source notes: that timeless tales like Rapunzel belong to adults as well as children." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Simply put, this is a gorgeous book; it demonstrates respect for the traditions of painting and the fairy tale while at the same time adhering to a singular, wholly original, artistic vision." The Horn Book

Review:

"Suffused with golden light, Zelinsky's landscapes and indoor scenes are grandly evocative, composed and executed with superb technical and emotional command." Kirkus Reviews

Paul O Zelinsky takes the Grimm Brothers' Tale and paints it with words and some of the most beautiful pictures I've ever seen. The colors are lustrous, the imagery strong. This is a must-have for any collection of children's books.
