LoveReading View on Rapunzel

Set in the glamorous seventies, this lively retelling is bursting with colourful period detail as Rapunzel goes from being a tower-block prisoner to a free and groovy girl. 

Lynn Roberts had added some funky seventies attitude to the traditional tale of the girl with the long hair and alongside David Roberts' fabulous illustrations this really does create a fantastic reimagining of this classic tale.  Great to share with young story lovers this is also a humorous nod to the 1970's and each page is filled with fab, fun loving pictures that will be enjoyed both by the young and old.  Simply awesome.

 

Rapunzel Synopsis

Meet a truly funky, flares-clad fairy-tale heroine and a genuinely frightening villain in this hilarious re-working of a much-loved fairy tale. Poor Rapunzel can only dream about the world outside because her Aunt Edna keeps her locked up in their tower-block home. The lifts don't work and Aunt Edna is too lazy to take the stairs, so she uses Rapunzel's extraordinarily long hair to climb in and out of their tiny flat. Rapunzel's life is confined within orange and brown flower-printed walls, with only her beloved records for solace. But then one day, a handsome stranger climbs up her hair and a new adventure begins. Set in the glamorous seventies, this lively retelling is bursting with colourful period detail.
