Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The prince is hoping to fall for Rapunzel, but since she can't quite hear what he asks for, everything but her hair gets tossed out her window. Instead of her curly locks, she throws her dirty socks. Instead of silky tresses, out go lacey dresses. And you can predict the guaranteed-to-crack-kids-up clothing she sends down when the prince simply says hair. . . .

Finally Rapunzel heaves out something that makes all the prince's dreams come true, showing how misunderstandings can lead to happily-ever-after.

Hilarious text, clever page-turns, and vibrant, eclectic art make this a non-traditional Rapunzel kids will want to read about again and again.

Synopsis:

"The course of true love never did run smooth." --William Shakespeare

When the prince spies Rapunzel high in her tower, he's convinced she is the girl of his dreams. Of course he thinks he can save her the traditional way, but this is no traditional Rapunzel.

She throws down everything but what the princ asks for--including a surprise that makes all his dreams come true.

A hilarious fractured fairy tale with clever page-turns and vibrant, eclectic art that is perfect for funny Valentine's Day story hours.

Synopsis:

When Rapunzel has trouble hearing the prince's calls for her to send down her hair, she flings down a number of other items instead. Hilarious text and eclectic art show how misunderstandings can lead to happily-ever-after. Full color.

This book is fantastic. I'm 28 years old and bought a copy for myself after reading it. I love Leah's take on an old story. The book is hilarious and fun. The illustrations are whimsical and creative.

Wonderful!
