The last part of the book was badly written and seemed rushed.

There's a great twist in this Rapunzel version. "Rapunzel" is a princess locked up in a tower by her stepmother. The witch in the story is good, she helps the prince to meet the princess and finally to be united. So by far this is the best "witch" I've read in a Rapunzel tale.

The princess too is very independent.

The art is absolutely beautiful, but I was really hoping that the story would've been better.

The story is a bit stale; it's very cliched as far as fairy tales go. Nothing new here. [return][return]The illustrations though are positively beautiful. Wonderful use of colors and imagery.
