Rapunzel is trapped, all alone, in a very tall tower. Her only visitor is a wicked witch who will rain down catastrophic curses if Rapunzel tries to escape. Every day, the witch snips off a few locks of Rapunzel’s golden hair to sell, leaving plenty for the witch use as a rope ladder.

One day, Rapunzel climbs out herself and starts to explore… She enjoys her freedom so much that she decides to make her own escape ladder from twigs and branches. But what will happen when the witch spots a leaf in Rapunzel’s hair?

Bethan Woollvin, winner of The Macmillan Prize for Illustration for Little Red Riding Hood, brings her imaginative flair to another traditional tale, creating a feisty, independent heroine in a landscape free from heroic princes!
