Picture Book Review: Rapunzel

Rapunzel
Rapunzel by Bethan Woollvin

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh, my goodness! This is wonderful!!! There is Rapunzel, stuck in the tower, with that evil witch visiting her every day. But does Rapunzel need a Prince to save her?? NO! Rapunzel figures out a way to defeat the witch and free herself from the tower, all on her own.

Rapunzel is resourceful and brave! She’s really quite ingenious, and (dare I say it?) full of spunk.
She makes friends with some forest animals, and with their help, she becomes a scourge to witches everywhere. I just love seeing a story where the princess takes action and saves herself!

I adore how the illustrations are all in black, white, and yellow. It makes the yellow objects stand out, and brings your attention to the page. There is this ridiculously chubby horse with a short neck, who looks so weird and funny! The witch’s dress/hat ensemble is strangely bizarre, and her yellow witchy underpants are hilarious!

There are so many little hidden gems in the illustrations, like when we see Rapunzel reading a book entitled “How To Defeat Witches.” I love those kind of details that make a book special!
