    " Beautiful, Renaissance-style illustrations. A pregnant woman begs her husband to get her some of the rapunzel growing in the witches garden. The witch catches the husband, but she lets him take the rapunzel when he agrees to give her the baby when she's born. The baby is named Rapunzel and the witch takes her away. At the age of 12, the witch puts Rapunzel in a tower with no door only a window. A prince hears Rapunzel singing and he visits her in the tower at night. The wtich finds out when Rapunzel complains that her clothing doesn't fit (aka she's pregnant). The witch cuts off Rapunzels hair and banishes her to the wilderness. When the prince comes to see Rapunzel, the witch lets down Rapunzel's braid for him to climb. When the witch tells him Rapunzel's gone, he's so upset he falls and becomes blind. He wanders into the wilderness where he eventually finds Rapunzel and their twin children. The family returns to civilization and everyone's happy. "

    " I absolutely loved the detail in the illustrations of this book! I think that even without the text, one is able to discern and create the story from merely the illustrations. I think this classic fairy tale portrays a great example of love, both of Rapunzel's father to his mother and the Prince to Rapunzel. The characters made great sacrifices and went to great lengths for the ones they loved. "

    " I remember reading stories of Rapunzel when I was a child and the only thing I could think of was how much I would hate to have people climbing up my hair... that had to hurt! Right?! But even now, this is not one of my favorite stories. However, the illustrations by Zelinsky are remarkable. Very detailed, colorful, and full of expression. After the story Zelinsky provides information about the story of Rapunzel and the adaptations that have been made over the years. I thought this was nice (mainly for adults) because when we hear Rapunzel we often think either of Grimm's or Disney. It was interesting to get some background to where this story really came from.
