A new take the classic fairytale Rapunzel. Rapunzel is strong, clever and capable heroine who works hard not just for her own freedom, but for the freedom of the kingdom from Mother Gothel's oppression.

Who does not love a good graphic novel? It was well-written with diverse characters and a strong female protagonist. ( )

WHOA, Punzie!!! Oft described as a "feminist fairy tale", I didn't read Rapunzel's Revenge for that reason. What caught my eye was the book cover .. INCREDIBLE illustrations (throughout) by Nathan Hale (no relation to the authors, Shannon and Dean Hale). I *LOVED* this graphic novel . . I'm a newbie insofar as the genre is concerned and, to this point, Rapunzel's Revenge is a graphic novel that totally engaged my imagination, the visual aspect of my brain and held my interest from page one until the very end!! It's a book I'll not soon forget!! Highly, HIGHLY recommended! Wheeeee!! What a fun adventure!

[Note: My start dates are skewed . . dunno why. I started reading this graphic novel on December 14, 2014 . . perhaps my insomnia-riddled brain isn't tracking start-dates correctly due to lack of sleep!!] ( )

A rip-roarin' yarn with plenty of hair-raising (literally) action to take readers away. ( )

This book has a western take on the classic fairy tale, Rapunzel. I would use it with upper elementary and middle school students. I would use it to compare and contrast characters, settings and problem/solution with other versions of Rapunzel.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 159990070X, Hardcover)

Once upon a time, in a land you only think you know, lived a little girl and her mother . . . or the woman she thought was her mother.

Every day, when the little girl played in her pretty garden, she grew more curious about what lay on the other side of the garden wall . . . a rather enormous garden wall.

And every year, as she grew older, things seemed weirder and weirder, until the day she finally climbed to the top of the wall and looked over into the mines and desert beyond.

Newbery Honor-winning author Shannon Hale teams up with husband Dean Hale and brilliant artist Nathan Hale (no relation) to bring readers a swashbuckling and hilarious twist on the classic story as you’ve never seen it before. Watch as Rapunzel and her amazing hair team up with Jack (of beanstalk fame) to gallop around the wild and western landscape, changing lives, righting wrongs, and bringing joy to every soul they encounter.

Rapunzel is raised in a grand villa surrounded by towering walls. Rapunzel dreams of a different mother than Gothel, the woman she calls Mother. She climbs over the wall and finds out the truth. Her real mother, Kate, is a slave in Gothel's gold mine. In this Old West retelling, Rapunzel uses her hair as a lasso and to take on outlaws--including Gothel.… (more)
