“Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair!” Trapped at the top of a tall tower, every day Rapunzel throws down her long, long golden hair for her captor, the enchantress, to climb. Until one day the King’s son discovers Rapunzel and they fall in love.
The prince and Rapunzel devise a plan to escape — but the enchantress discovers their scheme and chops off Rapunzel’s hair. Will the couple be parted forever?
This classic fairy tale is wonderfully brought to life with soft, colourful illustrations by popular illustrator Maja Dusíková.
On Dusíková’s edition of The Princess and the Pea:
‘Dusikova’s pictures are full of soft edges and soft colours, with pretty architectual details and an assortment of castle denizens, including a toddler in a jester’s motley. A rendering to bring a smile or possibly a giggle.’
— Kirkus Review (USA)
