5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful tale and a conundrum, 10 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Melisande (Walker Paperbacks) (Paperback)
This is a fantastic tale, sort of a combination of Gulliver's Travels, Alice in Wonderland and, of course, Rapunzel. It's not really fair of me to mentioned those other books, because this story has it's own flavour, setting and characters.

The conundrum concerns Melisande's hair which is under an enchantment. The more it is cut, the quicker it will grow. Only a very clever hero can sort this out!

Well worth a read and beautifully illustrated. Also quite funny (humourous) in parts.

(HALL OF FAME REVIEWER)    (REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Melisande (Walker Paperbacks) (Paperback)
E Nesbit is one of the greatest children's story-tellers of all time, and her enduring influence is everywhere in the Harry Potter series in that she thought through the logical consequences of magic. This lovely fairy-story about a Princess cursed, in the manner of Sleeping Beauty, to baldness, who then misuses her christening gift to have hair the redoubles in length each time it is cut is funny, romantic and even moving. PJ Lynch's pictures are, as usual, superb. This was one of my children's favourite picture books in the 1990s, and children have not changed....
