Rapunzel's Revenge | Shannon Hale, Dean Hale
Mehso-so

I‘m torn on this one. Good story, I liked that Rapunzel saves herself repeatedly and starts saving others too, the tiny bit of romance was good...but I‘m not sold on it. And was this used as inspiration for Disney‘s Tangled? Because I see a lot of similarities but not a straight adaptation.

Overall I‘d give it a so-so plus, but not quite a pick.

ravenlee Also, between finishing this and starting The Last Time I Lied I‘m just shy of 4 hours in #24B42019 @Andrew65 @TheReadingMermaid 11mo
TheReadingMermaid That's a great start sweetie! Remember tomorrow is another day! 😁👍🏻 11mo
LibrarianRyan I liked this GN and the books that come after but I do see your points. No it‘s not part of Disney‘s tangled but I had those same thoughts when I first saw tangelos. While mostly known for fairytales some of Shannon games other works are excellent. I suggest . (edited) 11mo

Andrew65 Well done on a good first day. 👏 11mo
ravenlee @LibrarianRyan I‘ve read several of Hale‘s books with my daughter (Princess in Black, Princess Academy) and really enjoyed Real Friends on my own. This one just didn‘t quite do it for me. 11mo

An extra hour in the library supervising study hall after school gave me time to enjoy this fun retelling of Rapunzel set in a land that looks a lot like the West in the late 1800s. Strange creatures, bandits, a girl who doesn‘t need anyone to save her (because yeah, she does most of the saving) & a little romance make for an enjoyable fairy tale. Great for MG and even YA readers.

MicrobeMom Is it a graphic novel? 11mo
TracyReadsBooks @MicrobeMom Yes! Should have mentioned that...☺️ 11mo
MicrobeMom @TracyReadsBooks great! My daughter loves them. Always look for new graphic novels! 11mo

Entertaining twist on Rapunzel. Her 20 foot braids are her best weapon! Some characters and elements from a few other fairy tales were thrown in as well.

Backyard reading and snacking with an iconic fairy tale #character turned badass comic book protagonist. Notice how Elliott has mastered the eating-pistachios-without-looking-up-from-her-book move. I‘m so proud. 😊

I really like the art work in this one. Rapunzel makes a good role model for girls because she is such a strong character. It was a fun read. #LetsGetGraphicWeeklongMarathon @Clwojick @TricksyTails

I don't usually read graphic novels so I think I'll try some this week. I've already read volume one of John Lewis' March which was pretty heavy. This looks like fun. #LetsGetGraphicWeeklongMarathon @Clwojick @TricksyTails

TricksyTails Yay!! Happy you‘re starting your venture into graphic novels with us!! 👏😁 2y
Clwojick I thought this one was fun! Excited to see what you think of it. 2y

A graphic novel adaptation of the Rapunzel story cleverly translated to an Old West version of Fairyland. It's a lot of fun. By Shannon Hale, author of the delightful superhero series The Princess in Black.

Taking place in a Western-inspired fantasy world, This #graphicnovel puts a new spin on the story of Rapunzel. Once she gets herself out of the tower, she's ready to free the land from the evil Gothel's control. The artwork is bright & dynamic, & the story is full of fun action. I think that kids and teens will both enjoy this #reimagining of the classic #fairytale.

When I first saw the tag #HairThereAndEverywhere, I immediately thought of Rapunzel. I picked up this #graphicnovel at my new library earlier this week when I went in to register for a library card. Yes, the first thing I do in a new town is go to the public library & get my library card. Priorities, people! Anyway, it looks like it'll be an interesting retelling. #AndItsAugust

monkeygirlsmama Hey, a library card is nearly as important as getting a place to stay in a new place. 😺And her hair reminds me of lengths of sausages. Hahaha😹 2y
MarriedtoMrT The graphic novel is great! Good choice. 2y

Read this again, this time for my book club. I just...I can't. I feel like a spoilsport. I like that Rapunzel is set on rescuing her mother, in theory I like the pseudo Wild West setting, I like a diverse cast. But...the diversity felt like it was being used as a ploy because of the many stereotypes found throughout. I'm not a huge fan of the art. And for as inventive as it was in retelling this fairy tale, something about it just seems boring.

Totally slacked on rereading this fractured fairy tale for my kids book club this Wednesday. I felt ho-hum about it the first time around, but my clubbers are suuuper into this stuff. Gotta please the masses. 🙄 At least it's 77° on this vernal equinox! #porchreading!

LeslieO So jealous! I love porch reading! Not quite possible here yet. Still in the 30s 3y

I decided to choose some #kickassheroines from graphic novels. Strong female characters in comics are my jam! #seasonsreadings2016

Starting with Rapunzel and going clockwise:
Rapunzel from Rapunzel's Revenge
Faith/Zephyr from Faith (Valiant)
Barbara Gordon/Oracle from Birds of Prey (DC)
Bobbi Morse from Mockingbird (Marvel)
Thor from Thor/The Almighty Thor (Marvel)
Alana from Saga (Image)
Adrienne, Raven, and Bedelia from Princeless (Action Lab)

Eyelit Yes!!! 3y
