    If you know the classic Rapunzel tale you will love the twist that Leah Wilcox put on this classic and for others this book is definitely a keeper. Told with bright vibrant illustrations and a rhyming text, this book is hilarious. As the prince rides by on his horse, he hears the princess from high up in her castle crying how the luster has gone out of her hair. Hoping to help her, he calls out to her from below but the princess has a hard hearing what the prince has to say. The prince is quite patient and persistent as he yells from below and he thinks of quite a variety of ways to help her escape but every time the princess hears the wrong thing and out goes something the prince doesn’t want. “Rapunzel, Rapunzel, throw down your hair!” She thought he said, “Your underwear,” “and out the window four pairs of underpants fly and land on the prince and his horse. He said curly locks, she thought dirty socks, he said ladder, she thought pancake batter, and these are just a few of the wordplays that the two youngsters have in this book. It’s the rhyme and rhythm that propels you forward as the book just keeps getting better and better as I waited for the princess to leap into his arms. The ending was not what I expected but it does end with a happily ever after. I will definitely be buying this one.

    You will have as much fun reading this story as your child will have listening to it. I'll be searching for more books by this author.

    Great to Read Aloud - yes, even for the boys!

    I am a storyteller at a public library and my kids LOVE this one. I usually do a fairy tales "do-over" themed story time. Think Stinky Cheese man and similar stories.

    Even the boys get a good laugh out of this one, if you can act it out dramatically. :)

    Funny story with a twist on the Rapunzel tale

    My daughter read this book at the library and then read it to me and we were both laughing. It is a tale of silly misunderstanding but all turns out happily ever after in the end. The graphics are beautiful, the illustrator uses actual fabrics and photos to bring the pictures to life. It is definitely one of her favorite books.

    A spoof on Rapunzel and the Prince!

    A wonderful lilting story in which the prince attempts to rescue Rapunzel from her tower, with mishap following mishap. Our family enjoys rereading this book and has shared it with several classroom teachers at school as well! We highly recommend it! It is just fun!

    Good Book-Good Laugh

    If you read aloud to children, this is the book for you. It's funny, it's light and the kids get the joke. They understand what's going on and will 'remind' Rapunzel out loud---'No, he means 'locks!' This is a fun book all around.

    Fun Book

    I enjoyed the book. I read it to many of the classes I sub for. The older elementary classes enjoyed it but the younger ones (K-2) had a difficult time understanding the vocabulary. This would be a great book to read aloud to your own child. After the first read they would catch on to the rhymes and get a giggle out of it.

    Kids Fall for Rapunzel

    Last year I was Grandma Goose and read to children at a local public school in grades K-4. One of the first books I used was Falling for Rapunzel because I thought the kids would like the total silliness of the story. I was right beyond my wildest dreams. They giggled; they gave belly laughs; they almost rolled in the aisles. They were enthralled with the pictures. It was a huge success, especially since some of them came up to me afterwards and asked if their school library had the book so they could read it for themselves. It also helped to introduce them to me as a reader and it paved my way. Later I was able to introduce more serious books, but always kept something like this one in reserve.
