Product Description

Review

'Exciting and fast-paced story makes for compelling reading' -- NATE Classroom Issue, Spring 2009

`A brilliant novel' -- Daily Mail

`A brilliant novel, retelling the old tale as a Wild West adventure for seven-years-old up' -- Daily Express

`If you ever thought of graphic novels as providing an easy read, this one will confound your expectations. It offers 144 pages of rip-roaring storytelling in which the familiar fairy-tale is hugely extended, gathering in its sweep all kinds of echoes from Wild West and Super-hero films as well as other fairy-stories' -- The School Librarian

`Proving that fairy tales are not just for girls ... a fabulous, off the wall, cowboy-themed graphic novel'
-- The Sunday Telegraph

`Snappy bantering dialogue gives it a Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid feel, while Rapunzel's tricks with her long red hair are constant fun'
-- DeathRay, Feb/March 2009

Format: Paperback
Once upon a time, in a land very far away, there lived a girl with her mother. Every day as the girl grew and played, she also became more and more curious about the world outside. One day she finally climbed up her wall and discovered that she really knew nothing at all.

And that was when she decided to do something about it.

Think you know Rapunzel? You've never heard it like this!

With a feisty heroine who uses her ridiculously long hair as a weapon and a sidekick who travels with a goose that just might lay a golden egg, RAPUNZEL'S REVENGE takes the traditional tale of Rapunzel and turns it on its head.

Shannon and Dean Hale create a thoroughly entertaining world in which Rapunzel takes claims her life as her own. Follow along as she embarks on a swashbuckling quest to save the world from the evil witch who has held her captive in a move that sets the bar for adventurous heroines everywhere.

Be forewarned: RAPUNZEL'S REVENGE is not for everyone. It is a graphic novel, and while the illustrations are gorgeous and highly amusing, some readers may not be drawn in by the format. However, for those who love graphic novels, fairy tales, and awesome heroines, this story may be just the thing.

Happy reading.

I bought this for myself and loved the twist on Rapunzel, here she doesn't passively sit around waiting to be rescued, she takes her fate (and her hair) into her own hands and rescues herself. Beautifully drawn and wonderfully funny. I zoomed through it in a couple of hours, but whilst I was reading it I really didnt want to put it down again.

Once I had finished it my daughter (6) spotted it and read it herself. Its now one of her favourite books and she loves the character of Rapunzel who can stand up for herself and doesn't let anyone put her down. What a truly wonderful message to give to a child, that you don't have to wait around for a man to rescue you, that with some self-confidence (and some reallly long hair) you don't have to rely on anyone else just ebcause of your gender.

Here is Rapunzel as you never imagined her... A clever idea, and well executed. We loved this: wonderful characters, great artwork, pacy plot. Who doesn't like reading comics? Fun from start to finish.
