Title: Rapunzel: The One with All the Hair
Written by: Wendy Mass
Genre: fiction, fairy tale
Reviewed by: Sheridan K., Grade 4
A witch imprisons Rapunzel in a tower on her birthday. The witch makes the cook put magical herbs in Rapunzel's food and it makes her hair grow. A prince named Benjamin tries to rescue her. He gets into a lot of adventures and trouble with his cousin, Elkin.
This book is organized in an interesting way because the chapters alternate between telling Rapunzel and Benjamin's separate stories. The twist is how their two stories come together in the end.
The message of this book is to never give up, which is similar to the other books I've read this summer. The story is mostly set in the tower and in the woods. It seems like it's a long time ago because, for example, they travel in carriages on dirt roads.
