Penguin Young Readers Group | October 14, 2002 | Trade Paperback

Rapunzel is rated 4 out of 5 by 1.
Trapped in a tower with no door, Rapunzel is allowed to see no one but the sorceress who has imprisoned her-until the day a young prince hears her singing to the forest birds. . . . The timeless tale of Rapunzel is vividly and magnificently brought to life through Paul O. Zelinsky's powerful sense of narrative and his stunning oil paintings.

"Simply put, this is a gorgeous book; it demonstrates respect for the traditions of painting and the fairy tale while at the same time adhering to a singular, wholly original, artistic vision." (The Horn Book, starred review)

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good choice for collection. 36p 9.5x12.25 with dust jacket, same picture under dust jacket. Caldecott medal is an embossed sticker. Full page illustrations, small amount of text. It is the best Rapuzel there is without getting into Disney books, if that's your choice. I personally would have chosen a different artist if it was available but this is the only one. And it won a Caldecott medal so it isn't that bad.
