Rapunzel's Revenge

Written by: Shannon and Dean Hale

First line: Once upon a time there was a beautiful little girl.

Why you should read this book: The age old tale of the kidnapped baby girl, locked helplessly in a tower until the day her prince will come is given a beautifully empowering twist, with a fairy tale kingdom set in a magically altered wild American west and a heroine who saves herself with the whippy versatility of her extra-long braids. The witch is a power-hungry robber baron who demands fealty from the region's denizens and uses her plant-based magic to suck the life from the land of those who oppose her. Along the way to saving her mother, freeing the parched people of the land, and destroying the witch who imprisoned her, Rapunzel encounters, fights, and liberates classic fairy tale characters along with the legends of the southwest (including an appearance of the ferocious jackalope).

Why you shouldn't read this book: You are deeply immersed in a trade paperback of Fables.
