Rabunzel Review

Fantasy / Magical Featured Books for 3+ readers Featured Books for 5+ readers Funny

Fizzing with energy, this is a gloriously silly but also empowering story very loosely based on the classic Rapunzel fairy tale

A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month March 2021

Thinking that her daughter Rabunzel’s very, very long ears would make her the object of too much attention from the hungry-eyed creatures that lurk in the deep, dark forest, Mrs Rabbit locks her up high in a tall, tall tree. Rabunzel is bored stiff in her prison and, despite all her mother’s best intentions, it is not long before her amazing ears attract attention. While it is Flash Harry the Hare who releases Rabunzel it is soon clear that she needs no champion: her ears prove to the ultimate weapons against all comers!

Rabunzel Synopsis

Rabunzel, Rabunzel, let down your ears!...

Rabunzel has a teeny tufty tail, a twitchy nose and two wide brown eyes. She also has VERY long ears - so long that her mother worries they will make her easy bait for the hungry creatures of the forest. The answer? Rabunzel must be kept safe ... in towering hutch, high in the sky.

Here Rabunzel waits grumpily for her mother's daily visit with carrots and fresh lettuce, letting down her ears so she can climb up the tower. But one day, it isn't her mother who climbs up Rabunzel's very long ears...

A fearless, fun-filled fairy tale - perfect for any little reader who loves a twist in the tale!

About Gareth P. Jones

Gareth first started writing when he was very young but it wasn’t until he was in his early twenties that he completed his first novel. Having had it universally rejected, he wrote a novel for children called Who Killed Charlie Twig, which received an equally unimpressed reception and remains rightly unpublished to this day. Some years passed during which Gareth met his future wife, Lisa and began a career in TV. Working on shows such as 'The Big Breakfast' and 'Richard & Judy', he became side-tracked from his book writing ambitions until one day he found himself having ...
