Review

An Al Roker Today Show Book Club Pick, Indie Next Pick, ALA 2009 Notable Children's Book, YALSA 2009 Great Graphic Novel for Teens (Awards)

With its can-do heroine, witty dialogue and romantic ending, this graphic novel has something for nearly everybody. (Publisher's Weekly, starred review)

The dialogue is witty, the story is an enticing departure from the original, and the illustrations are magically fun and expressive. (SLJ, starred review)

With such a successful debut, one hopes to see more graphic novels from this trio. (Horn Book, starred review)

Outrageously funny! (Discovery Girls)

Book Description

A sequel to the highly acclaimed Rapunzel's Revenge, team Hale has delivered an all-new, hilarious tall tale about Jack, his beanstalk...and his best-friend-with-wicked-braids, Rapunzel.

About the Author

Shannon's mother says she was a storyteller from birth, jabbering endlessly in her carriage as the two strolled through the neighborhood; once she could form complete sentences, she made up stories, bribing her younger siblings to perform them in mini plays. When she was ten, she began writing books, mostly fantasy stories where she was the heroine, and she continued writing secretly for years while pursuing acting in stage and improv comedy. After detours studying in Mexico, the U. K., and Paraguay, Shannon earned a bachelor's degree in English from the University of Utah and a Masters in Creative Writing from the University of Montana. In the interim, she submitted short stories and novels to magazines and publishers, saving all her rejection letters which she has since laminated into one continuous 60-foot roll which she proudly unfurls to audiences as a testament to her dedication and determination.

Since the publication of her first book, The Goose Girl, in 2003, Shannon has become a beloved author to young readers as well as booksellers and educators. Her third novel, Princess Academy, earned her a Newbery Honor and is a The New York Times, Book Sense, and Publishers Weekly bestseller. Shannon has also written two books for adults, Austenland and The Actor and the Housewife. Shannon lives in Salt Lake City, Utah, with her husband, Dean, their children, and their pet, a small plastic pig.
