UPDATE: I couldn't put the book down. It's a great retelling of Rapunzel. A must read AND there's a sequel, "Calamity Jack." Oh, yeah!

I bought this book for the kid as it was on the 2010 Amelia Bloomer list for 3rd-6th graders. But so far the book is awesome, but a bit dark. I'm going to read it before giving it to her. She empathizes with characters, so I'm just being cautious.

Pretty good storyline. Very clever and imaginative. ( )

I "read" some of this to my niece the other day because it's the closest thing I have to a picture book. And by "read" I mean I made stuff up so we could get through it faster. But I caught enough of the actual story to make me want to read it on my own, and I really enjoyed it! When my niece is a little older perhaps I'll reintroduce her to this—it's got tons of girl power, which I'm sure she'll love. ( )

Really fun Rapunzel story. I liked the comic book style. ( )

This is a retelling of the original Rapunzel Fairy Tale. It is set in the wild west. When Rapunzel finds out the evil ways of her adopted mother, she sets out for revenge. ( )

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.
