Description

The 12th installment in the New York Times best-selling series asks: What if Rapunzel's mother drank a potion from the wrong flower?

Desperate to save the life of their queen and her unborn child, the good citizens of the kingdom comb the land for the all-healing Sundrop flower to cure her . . . but someone mistakenly picks the blossom of the Moondrop instead. This shimmering flower heals the queen and she delivers a healthy baby girl?with hair as silver and gray as the moon. But with her mysterious hair comes dangerous magical powers: the power to hurt, not heal. For the safety of the kingdom, Rapunzel is locked away in a tower and put under the care of the powerful goodwife, Mother Gothel.

For eighteen years Rapunzel stays imprisoned in her tower, knowing she must protect everyone from her magical hair. When she finally decides to leave the only home she's ever known—to see the floating lights that appear on her birthday—she gets caught up in an unexpected adventure with two thieves: a would-be outlaw named Gina, and Flynn Rider, a rogue on the run. Before she can reach her happy ending, Rapunzel learns that there is far more to her story, and her magical hair, and her future than she ever knew.

          What if Rapunzel's mother drank a potion from the wrong flower? The Twisted Tales this time revisit the tale of Rapunzel--specifically, Disney's animated feature Tangled with elements from the TV spinoff included. In this version, a peasant brings a different sort of flower to save the ailing, pregnant queen: the Moondrop flower as opposed to the traditional Sundrop, which has magical, healing properties. The mix-up changes things a little bit: Rapunzel grows long, silver hair that imbues her with the power to kill, rather than heal. For the safety of the kingdom, little Rapunzel is tucked away in her tower and watched over by the duplicitous Mother Gothel. Of course, Rapunzel yearns for freedom and finds it in escaping her tower and traveling the countryside with handsome rogue Flynn Rider and a young woman named Gina. The trio investigates the secrets of Rapunzel's magical hair while Gothel and other villainous characters hunt them down. The action is crisp, and the characters are well rendered; one small drawback is the book's inability to break free of Tangled's (admittedly airtight) structure despite the series' promise of twists. Regardless, the read remains compelling, and the author effectively captures the balance of enthusiasm and longing that makes Rapunzel such a beloved Disney princess. Die-hard fans will thrill, and, at the end of the day, that's what really matters. Main characters read as White. An engaging redressing of a near bulletproof tale. (Fantasy. 12-16)

          Gr 6 Up-The 12th book in the "A Twisted Tale" series asks: If Rapunzel's mother accidentally drank a potion from the Moondrop flower instead of the Sundrop, how would Tangled have gone? Rapunzel grows long silver hair and develops powers that hurt rather than heal. To protect the kingdom, she's locked away in a tower under the care of Mother Gothel. When Rapunzel finally escapes the tower, she runs into Flynn Rider and a woman named Gina, and together they investigate Rapunzel's mysterious hair while running from Mother Gothel. The book takes on Tangled's tight pacing and action sequences, which isn't as twisty as the series name implies, but ultimately provides a fun time for fans. Characters cued white. VERDICT A fun, if not particularly standout, reimagining of a beloved story.
