Staff Reviews

Things I adore about Bethan Woollvin's Rapunzel:
1. There is no prince (only a delightfully chubby forest pony).
2. Heaps of deadpan humor in both text and illustration. 
3. HILARIOUS witch underpants.
Woollvin is firmly establishing herself as the Angela Carter of picture books--her playful, subversive take on fairy tales is both empowering and deliciously offbeat. More, please!

— Hannah DeCamp


From New York Times Best Illustrated Book-winner Bethan Woollvin comes a delightful, laugh-out-loud retelling of the classic fairy tale "Rapunzel."

"It's about time that Rapunzel saved herself...Thanks to Woollvin, readers may grow up thinking this just-wicked-enough retelling is the classic one; if they ever stumble across versions with the prince, they may wonder why he was thought necessary." --Publishers Weekly

Rapunzel lives all alone in a tall, dark tower. Under the threat of a witch's fearsome curse, the poor girl seems doomed to a life in captivity. But is Rapunzel frightened? Oh no, not she Rapunzel has a few tricks (and friends) up her sleeve and she's not afraid to use them.

With irreverent humor and striking illustrations, author-illustrator Beth Woollvin, creator of Little Red and Bo the Brave, puts a brave, female-empowerment twist on the classic story of a helpless damsel in distress.
