Overview

The prince is hoping to fall for Rapunzel, but since she can’t quite hear what he asks for, everything but her hair gets tossed out her window. Instead of her curly locks, she throws her dirty socks. Instead of silky tresses, out go lacey dresses. And you can predict the guaranteed-to-crack-kids-up clothing she sends down when the prince simply says hair. . . .

Finally Rapunzel heaves out something that makes all the prince’s dreams come true, showing how misunderstandings can lead to happily-ever-after.

Hilarious text, clever page-turns, and vibrant, eclectic art make this a non-traditional Rapunzel kids will want to read about again and again.

Praise

“A perfect read-aloud. . . . This zany twist on a familiar favorite zips along with bouncy rhymes, tantalizing wordplay, and humorous cotton-candy-colored artwork.” –School Library Journal

“This irreverent spoof . . . plays with words, rhyme, and fairy-tale conventions with obvious delight. Listeners will certainly call out for more.” –The Horn Book
