Falling for Rapunzel by Leah Wilcox, Lydia Monks (Illustrator)
A humorous adaptation of the fairy tale Rapunzel. Witty rhymes accompany the colorful illustrations. As in the original story, the Prince calls to Rapunzel to throw down here golden locks in order to rescue her. But that is where the similarities end. This fractured fairy tale is sure to bring laughter to group reading time as Rapunzel's hearing faulters. The Prince asks for her locks, tresses, rope, twine, and ladder. Rapunzel responds with socks, dresses, a cantaloupe, a swine, and a bowl of pancake batter. Rapunzel's last mistake backfires - makes a hysterical ending for Valentine's Day.
