"This is how fairy tales were meant to be told." ―School Library Journal

"It's about time that Rapunzel saved herself...Thanks to Woollvin, readers may grow up thinking this just-wicked-enough retelling is the classic one; if they ever stumble across versions with the prince, they may wonder why he was thought necessary." --Publishers Weekly

RapunzelRapunzel lives all alone in a tall, dark tower. Under the threat of a witch's fearsome curse, the poor girl seems doomed to a life in captivity. But is Rapunzel frightened? Oh no, not she Rapunzel has a few tricks (and friends) up her sleeve and she's not afraid to use them.

Little Red | On her way to Grandma's house, Little Red meets a wolf. Which might scare some little girls, but not this little girl. She knows just what the wolf is up to, and she's not going to let him get away with it.

In this updated fairy tale with a feminist twist, author-illustrator Bethan Woollvin (creator of Hansel & Gretel, Rapunzel, and Bo the Brave) uses sly humor, striking visuals, and a bit of bravery and ingenuity to turn a familiar tale on its head for modern readers.
