Book: Rapunzel's Revenge by Shannon Hale, Dean Hale and "no relation" Nathan Hale
Genre: YA graphic novel
My first graphic novel! It was fun. Different, but fun. I loved the pictures. Nathan Hale is amazing. I can't even imagine doing such a huge project. But, I did miss the word detail that you get from a novel. Still, it was very fun and very cute.
The story is a twist on the familiar Rapunzel, with a little Jack mixed in too! There's no rescuing prince, however, to whisk her away out of the tower! But get out she does, and once out, she meets a bunch of different communities of people, each of whom she helps in some way or another. Somewhere along the way, everything turns into a bit of a western story, which adds quite the personality to the whole book.
I loved it. It was great. My nine year old daughter loved it too, giggling and "oh no-ing!" as she read. A perfect thing for her right now. I hear there'll be sequels. Great news that is.
