Rapunzel’s Revenge

By: Shannon Hale

Dean Hale

Illustrator: Nathan Hale

Rapunzel is raised in a grand villa surrounded by towering walls. Gothel, the woman she calls Mother, dismisses her recurring dreams about a different, loving mother, but when Rapunzel climbs over the wall she finds out the truth. Her real mother, Kate, is a slave in Gothel's gold mine, and Gothel's power extends over a barren landscape that stretches as far as the eye can see. In this Old West retelling, Rapunzel doesn't let down her hair to a prince; she uses it as a lasso and to take on outlaws-including Gothel. Fullcolor graphic novel.
