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."
