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.

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.
