Beautiful Rapunzel is locked away in a tall, tall tower, visited only by the little creatures of the forest and the witch who has imprisoned her. Until one day a handsome prince, passing by on his horse, is transfixed by the magical sound of Rapunzel singing to her animals friends and knows he must reach her… Can true love transform Rapunzel’s life forever?
The art in this book was interesting and, at times, really beautiful, so it was worth reading once for the art alone. However, the text was really long and detailed–too much so for my toddler to enjoy. I’d save it for older kids who are still really into fairy tales, or just enjoy the pictures.
