Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Once upon a time, in a land you only think you know, lived a little girl and her mother...or the woman she thought was her mother.

Every day, when the little girl played in her pretty garden, she grew more curious about what lay on the other side of the garden wall...a rather enormous garden wall.

And every year, as she grew older, things seemed weirder and weirder, until the day she finally climbed to the top of the wall and looked over into the mines and desert beyond.

Newbery Honor-winning author Shannon Hale teams up with husband Dean Hale and brilliant artist Nathan Hale (no relation) to bring readers a swashbuckling and hilarious twist on the classic story as you've never seen it before. Watch as Rapunzel and her amazing hair team up with Jack (of beanstalk fame) to gallop around the wild and western landscape, changing lives, righting wrongs, and bringing joy to every soul they encounter.

Review:

"The Hale team creates an engaging heroine....This novel presents entertaining girl power at its quirkiest." VOYA

Review:

"The dialogue is witty, the story is an enticing departure from the original, and the illustrations are magically fun and expressive." School Library Journal

Review:

"A dash of typical fairy-tale romance, a strong sense of social justice and a spunky heroine make this a standout choice for younger teens." Kirkus Reviews

sarah gilbert, November 10, 2010 (view all comments by sarah gilbert)
I didn't expect to be quite so charmed and amused by a graphic novel; I didn't expect to be so smitten with a hardy girl hero (no heroine, this Rapunzel); I didn't expect to stay up past my boys' bedtime finishing the whole thing. While it's a little incongruous for a dedicated black-and-white novel reader to switch to the graphic novel format, it wasn't hard to slip into the world for an hour or so, not manga, but with all the kick-butt action and big-eyed sweetness its fans expect.

I loved the way Rapunzel took the reins (literal, figurative) of the tale and led the whole thing, start to finish, laughing off her sidekick/love interest's offer of chivalry even at the point where a Disney character would have swooned (you know, past the hairdo-and-ballgown stage). there was no wiggling or waggling or lip service to traditional fairy tale roles. Rapunzel is badass start to finish, and I love that (especially as a role model for my eight-year-old boy).
