Description

Escaping from the enchanted tree where Mother Gothel imprisoned her, Rapunzel sets off alone through the ghost towns and Badlands of Gothel's Reach. She is determined to find Gothel's Villa and teach Mother Gothel a long-overdue lesson for her years of treachery and lies, and help her real mother get out of the mine camps where Mother Gothel has kept her enslaved. Rapunzel's adventures take her across a country much akin to the Wild Wild West, where she is soon wanted - dead or alive - for horse thieving, kidnapping, jail breaking and using her hair in a manner other than nature intended! In this highly original take on the familiar story of Rapunzel, Shannon and Dean Hale introduce us to a feisty and dynamic heroine and Nathan Hale's illustrations offer a striking visual feast, ensuring this is a truly unforgettable reading experience.show more

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 Librarianshow more
