There are two sides to every story -- even fairy tales. A he said/she said series with a prince and princess twist.

Rapunzel is having the ultimate bad day. She's been stolen from home by an evil witch, locked in an incredibly high tower, and doesn't even have a decent brush for her hair. Prince Benjamin is in a pretty uncomfortable situation himself. His father wants him to be more kingly, his mother wants him to never leave her sight, and his cousin wants to get him into as much trouble as possible. Plus, there's the little matter of prearranged marriages. . . . Both Rapunzel and Prince Benjamin are trapped--in very different ways. It's only when their paths cross, that things really start to change.

In RAPUNZEL: THE ONE WITH ALL THE HAIR, we get the traditional story of Rapunzel with slight variations to bring something a little different to the reader. For example, Ben isn't the typical prince. Instead, he wears glasses, but always manages to break them. He isn't skilled in things like hunting or archery. But, like the average prince, Ben wants to go on grand adventures so his people will sing songs about him.

Rapunzel's parents make a deal with a witch that causes her to be locked in a tower. The only positive thing going on for Rapunzel is her cat Sir Kitty and her cook/caretaker. She dreams of escape, but like in the traditional story, she can't do it alone.

I love the story of Rapunzel and I like that in this one, the Prince and Rapunzel both have faults. They aren't made out to be perfect. I also liked the involvement of both Elkin and Steven in the story because they added more substance.


Final Verdict: I recommend this to fans of middle grade fairytales and for those who also enjoy the story of Rapunzel. It was a light and easy read.
