5 out of 5 stars on GoodReads


Rapunzel escapes from her tower, and must travel through the Wild West countryside to rescue her true mother from the coal mines of the evil witch. She teams up with Jack, and they travel from town to town, saving people and doing good.

I loved this graphic novel! It’s full of adventure and magic, and the dialogue is hilarious! I loved Rapunzel’s rebellious spirit, and her kindness and compassion for all the suffering people of the Western towns. I loved her silly camaraderie with Jack, and how their friendship grew through their adventurous exploits.

Great characters, an interesting story with lots of action, and gorgeous colorful illustrations that pulled me into this tall tale.

Jack brings Rapunzel to the city, where he hopes to impress her with this city sophistication and help restore his mother’s bakery. But nothing goes according to plan when mysterious ant people attack the city, and the giants take over the police force!

Another rollickly adventure full of magic and hilarious dialogue! I love the continuing romance and friendship between Jack and Rapunzel, as well as the addition of various supporting characters.
The colorful illustrations, the fast paced adventure, and the imaginative and magical world, all made me love every page of this story!
