Caldecott Medalist Trina Schart Hyman's Rapunzel hearkens to a time of dark forests, forbidden gardens, and secrets locked away in a tower. Rapunzel is an innocent, barefooted beauty with "long blonde hair, as thick and glowing as sunlight or beaten gold." This version of Rapunzel is retold by Barbara Rogasky, who also collaborated with Hyman on The Golem, The Water of Life, and an illustrated collection of poetry for children, Winter Poems. Rogasky's version of this fairy tale flows along in the best of old-fashioned, once-upon-a-time cadences, such as when the prince hears "Rapunzel's sweet, lonely voice singing a song that pierced his heart." As for the witch, Mother Gothel, "she was so feared that even people who had never seen her had nightmares about her." A not-to-be-missed fairy tale for eager readers and listeners who have a soft spot for enchanting adventure stories with happy endings. (Ages 5 to 9)From the Inside Flap:
Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair! Trapped at the top of a tall tower, every day Rapunzel throws down her long, long golden hair for her captor, the enchantress, to climb. Until one day the King's son discovers Rapunzel and they fall in love. Together they devise a plan to escape, but the enchantress discovers their scheme and chops off Rapunzel's hair. Will Rapunzel and the prince be parted forever? This beautiful hardcover edition of the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale brings this much-loved story to life with soft, warm illustrations by Maja Duskov.
