Overview


The girl's stuck in a tower. The boy's stuck in a castle. There are two sides to every story....

Rapunzel is having the ultimate bad day. She's been stolen by a witch, may have a ghost for a roommate, and doesn't even have a decent brush for her hair.

Prince Benjamin's got it pretty tough, too. His father wants him to be more kingly, his mother wants him to never leave her sight, and his cousin wants to get him into as much trouble as possible (possibly with a troll).

Both Rapunzel and Prince Benjamin are trapped--in very different ways. Once their paths cross, well, that's when things get really strange.

Journey back to the days when fairy tales were true with this fun and fresh spin on a timeless tale!

Editorial Reviews

Poor Rapunzel. She's having the ultimate bad hair day. Not only has an evil witch kidnapped her; she doesn't even have a decent brush for her incredibly long tresses. But, fortunately for her, she's not alone in her misery: Prince Benjamin is being pestered by his royal parents to marry a bride of their choice. Mercifully, a double rescue will solve both their problems. A fresh take on an age-old fairy tale.

Brian Monahan

I am a fairytale lover, and this book was somewhat different from other fairytale books. This is one of the only fairytales I have ever read that has been funny. It keept me laughing throughout the story. It was also one of the only fairytales I have ever read that was told by more than one character. This story had the Prince's side and Rapunzel's side. It was interesting to see what each was doing and how there stories flowed together, and yet you could tell a difference in their characters and writing styles. It was an extreamly enjoyable book. This book is great for girls who love fairytales. This book is for the younger crowd mostly but also those who just love a clean, short, but funny fairytell retelling. I can't remember any suggestive material.

I loved this book. I think it is one of the best books I have ever read. I like it because it has the original base line of the Rapunzel story you all know, but then, it has twists to it. There are a lot of things you don¿t expect. The Prince finds Rapunzel in a very different way than you would expect. There are also some unexpected creatures in the book. One of the strange creatures you can find out about in this book is a green person who helps Rapunzel out. The Prince is not one of the most sporty people. He enjoys chess but does not like hunting or any other sport his family can think of. Rapunzel is a bit self-absorbed at first, but then she starts thinking of others more. One thing Rapunzel found in the tower is a cat, who she names Sir Kitty. (I don¿t understand why the cat is called Sir Kitty because the cat is a girl.) This is an amazing book. I read it for school, and I was supposed to do reading projects for it. I wrote a song about the original Rapunzel story, which goes to the tune of ¿What Child Is This.¿ It fits with this story, because a song is sung in the book about the adventures of the story. (I don¿t want to give too much away, but I don¿t think I have said too much.) 'The Damsel and the Knight' : 'There was a damsel in distress. / She was trapped inside a tower. / The king and queen sent the royal guards. / They searched for many an hour. / Help! Help! Said the damsel fair / With her dirty dress and her tangled hair. / Help! Help! Come and get me out! / Was what they heard her shout. // A knight in armor heard her cries / While hunting in the woods that day. / He climbed her hair and got her down / In the most amazing way. / Thank you for such a save! / I¿ve never seen a knight so brave! / I feared that I¿d soon be dead, / But now thee I shall wed.' I am ten years old and in the fourth grade. My name is Emma D. I think this book is good for third graders and up. (My mom submitted this for me.)

It was cool if you like funny books. I totally recomend it. My sister even liked it and she has no sense of humor. She only laughs when im in pain. Any ways I thought it was wicked. Totally radical.

This book was an interesting two sided story.

This was a amazing book I think Wendy Mass is amazing author. I just love the funny romances she creates in many of her stories like 11 birthdays, or the rest of the fairy tales she put amazing twist on by making it two sided. By seeing the point of view of not just the orignal main charector of the classic tale but also the prince or boy she is destian to be with. I think this book, no all of her books are amazing and should be read by anyone who is looking for a funny, sad, sweet, and breath taking adventures that leave you on the end of your seat. Wendy Mass ounce again has me saying wow to one of her page turning books.

I love all of the wendy mass books... but i didnt really like this one. (especially compared to the other books) it is nothing like the others. So please dont buy it if you think it will be great because it is written by wendy mass. But if you read the sample and it sounds amazing dont let my review stop you. But if you dont absolutely LOVE fairy tales dont buy it. If your looking for a book by her i suggest 11 birthdays, finally, every soul a star, or a mango shaped space. They are awesome!
