Rapunzel has always lived with her mother, Mother Gothel, who has magical growing power and is preventing anyone else from growing anything on the land. When one day she recognizes a woman slaving away in the mine as Rapunzel’s real mother, Mother Gothel locks Rapunzel in a tree. She escapes using her extremely long hair like a lasso, and vows to go and free her mother. She meets Jack (of Jack and the Beanstalk, about whom the sequel is written), and together they travel back to rescue her mother and help out many others along the way.

If you love fairytales, but sometimes wish the female characters could be more awesome, this book is full of cool fight scenes with Rapunzel’s hair. Also, fans of the Wild West will like the use of that setting.
