Annotation: Hale and Hale present us with a different Rapunzel story – one where Rapunzel rescues herself and goes on a truely Western adventure to rescue her real mother and punish Mother Gothel.

Booktalk: Do you know the story of Rapunzel? Well, take everything you know about it and throw it out the window – Hale and Hale stand the story on its head! Turning Rapunzel into the heroine and replacing medieval castles with the Wild West and a tree ,tree that serves as Repunzel's tower they re-imagine the tale that everyone knows.
