Rapunzel

(2) K-3 Woollvin (Little Red) updates another Grimms favorite with a can-do, self-rescuing heroine--there's no prince in sight. Rapunzel resides in a tower, trapped by a witch; not having it, Rapunzel climbs down her own hair, dispatches the witch, and graduates to a life of witch-hunting. The direct, energetic text keeps the pace taut. Bold, graphic gouache illustrations capture modern and traditional elements and offer sly tidbits of humor.
