Annotation:  After being locked away in a tower, Rapunzel strikes off on her own to rescue herself. Along the way, she frees her mother, liberates her countrymen, and even manages to find true love.

Book Talk: In the modern day Rapunzel remix, you won’t find a damsel in distress pining away for true love’s rescue, but rather, a swashbuckling shero! Rapunzel refashioned her long hair into lassos that she skillful wielded to get out of any sticky situation. Join her on the adventure of a lifetime!
