Rapunzel Press Reviews

The words and the illustrations combine beautifully and will ensure that children will not tire of reading this wonderful traditional tale - and neither will their parents. * The Bookbag * Very well told with densely colourful illustrations. * The School Librarian * Her subtle tapestry-like illustration style (and) lyrical text helps transport the reader back at least as far as the Brothers Grimm in true `once upon a time' fashion. * CORK EVENING ECHO * Dazzling illustrations...accompany this retelling of the dramatic, classic fairytale * Booktrust *
