Synopsis

Rapunzel by John Cech

This title is aimed at children aged between 5 and 11 years old. We never really know where a story will begin or end. This one starts with a head of lettuce...Thus begins John Cech's enchanting retelling of Rapunzel, the tale of a poor couple forced to surrender their newborn daughter to a powerful witch, all for having stolen some lettuce to satisfy the wife's unbearable hunger. And so the witch takes Rapunzel to a secluded tower, where the girl spends her days singing and braiding her long hair. Then, one day, a prince hears her sweet voice and everything changes...Complete with fanciful illustrations by Fiona Sansom, this beautiful book belongs on every fairy tale lover's shelf.
