Rating
Meet a truly funky, flares-clad fairy-tale heroine and a genuinely frightening villain in this hilarious re-working of a much-loved fairy tale. Poor Rapunzel can only dream about the world outside because her Aunt Edna keeps her locked up in their tower-block home. the lifts don't work and Aunt Edna is too lazy to take the stairs, so she uses Rapunzel's extraordinarily long hair to climb in and out of their tiny flat. Rapunzel's life is confined within orange and brown flower-printed walls, with only her beloved records for solace. But then one day, a handsome stranger climbs up her hair and a new adventure begins. Set in the glamorous seventies, this lively retelling is bursting with colourful period detail. David Roberts's exquisite illustrations create a satisfying tribute to the era of the Bay City Rollers and Saturday Night Fever. Spot the bell-bottomed trousers, space hoppers and precarious platforms! Other books in the series: Little Red and Cinderella.
