“Rapunzel’s Revenge by Shannon & Nathan Hale (Rapunzel’s Revenge #1)
I’ve been a fan of Hale’s for sometime now. My readers will know I am rather fond of Mr. Hale’s graphic novel series, Hazardous Tales series. So when I heard he and his wife had a fresh take on Rapunzel, well I was immediately sold. I was actually very lucky to find this at the used bookstore for only $84 NT.
This retelling of Rapunzel puts the long-haired maiden in control of her destiny. She has a lot of spunk. She also has a side-kick, Jack, who she bumps into after her escape from her ‘tower’ but speaking of that, she didn’t need any prince or hero to rescue her. She figured out how to get out all by herself. Then she bumps into someone else and that becomes the main plot of the book.
I liked the world building they did in this series. I know there is another book in the series, Calamity Jack, but I’m not sure it is in the same world. It would be a shame to lose that.
I can’t wait to read this to my daughter. I love exposing her to things I like, that I think (and hope) she likes too. I think I hear Calamity Jack calling me now…gotta go!
