Publishers Description

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.

Hairy Fairy Tale  Nov 3, 2008
Reimaging is in the air: Batman is moved into a post-9/11 world, and Robert Downey Jr. is playing Sherlock Holmes without the deerstalker and pipe. Even the witches in Oz have gotten a makeover.

Now it's happened to Rapunzel, the princess locked in the tower left with nothing to do but condition her hair and wait for her prince. At the hands of Shannon and Dean Hale in this 144-page full-color graphic novel, she's a spunky Wild West heroine who climbs down from her tower and, armed only with her braids -- which she uses as bullwhips -- sets off to rescue her mother and avenge herself on the witch who rules the land.

Along the way, she hooks up with Jack, a thief with a goose, and bounces from trouble to trouble: posses, the rocky desert landscape, evil magic, dwarves, and a hulk sent by the witch to recapture her.

"Rapunzel's Revenge" is part Western tall tale, part parody on the traditional fairy tale, and a delightful mix of adventure and humor that's perfect for girls. But before you give it to the daughter in your life, read it first.

Once upon a time, in a land very far away, there lived a girl with her mother. Every day as the girl grew and played, she also became more and more curious about the world outside. One day she finally climbed up her wall and discovered that she really knew nothing at all.

And that was when she decided to do something about it.

Think you know Rapunzel? You've never heard it like this!

With a feisty heroine who uses her ridiculously long hair as a weapon and a sidekick who travels with a goose that just might lay a golden egg, RAPUNZEL'S REVENGE takes the traditional tale of Rapunzel and turns it on its head.

Shannon and Dean Hale create a thoroughly entertaining world in which Rapunzel takes claims her life as her own. Follow along as she embarks on a swashbuckling quest to save the world from the evil witch who has held her captive in a move that sets the bar for adventurous heroines everywhere.

Be forewarned: RAPUNZEL'S REVENGE is not for everyone. It is a graphic novel, and while the illustrations are gorgeous and highly amusing, some readers may not be drawn in by the format. However, for those who love graphic novels, fairy tales, and awesome heroines, this story may be just the thing.

Happy reading.

Rapunzel's Revenge looks like a kids book, but not too great for kids  Oct 26, 2008
I didn't read this book to the end. I bought it for my grandchildren and could see that it was more of an adult book, even thought it's written in a "comic book" format. Lots of sarcasm, which is lost on kids.
Loved it!  Sep 23, 2008
Excellent read for any age. It feels real and is funny as heck with beautiful, fresh illustrations. Totally appropriate in every way as well. I read it to my 8 and 5 year old brothers and had the entire family listening in. I recommend it to anyone who loves stories.
A Western Fairy Tale  Sep 18, 2008
This is a graphic novel in the truest sense of the word, a done-in-one novel length comic book. It's intended for, and marketed to, the middle reader set (ages 9 to 12), but it's just as suitable for young adults and adults alike.

Rapunzel's Revenge takes place in a fairy-tale-version of the American west, in which standard fairy tale tropes are recast in western idioms. The main character is Rapunzel, a young girl raised in a well-guarded villa by a woman she thinks is her mother. When Rapunzel learns that the woman is in fact an evil sorceress who rules the land with an iron fist, she tries to escape, only to end up imprisoned in a high tower, her hair cursed to grow endlessly. But rather than waiting for any handsome prince to come along and rescue her, Rapunzel simply braids her hair into two long rope-like braids, frees herself, and then using her braids as lariats and whips sets out to end the sorceress's rule once and for all. She meets up with a young ne'er-do-well named Jack, who is down on his luck until his pet goose finally lays an egg, and together they travel across the deserts and forests, having adventures. Highly recommended.
