Rapunzel | 莴苣姑娘好大胆
Author/Illustrator: Bethan Woollvin
Translated from: United Kingdom
Rapunzel is a spunky girl with hair made of gold, who lives all alone in a tall, dark tower. Under the threat of a witch’s fearsome curse, the poor girl seems doomed to a life in captivity. But is Rapunzel frightened? Oh no, not she! Rapunzel has a few tricks (and friends) up her sleeve and she’s not afraid to use them. With irreverent humour and striking illustrations, author-illustrator Beth Woollvin, puts a brave, female-empowerment twist on the classic story of a helpless damsel in distress.
Woollvin's first book, Little Red , introduced readers to her quirky, folkloric black, white, and gray illustrations enlivened by a single, striking primary color on the heroine. Utilizing simple, bold strokes of yellow, black, and gray inks, Woollvin expressively fills each page with eye-catching details that will bring readers back for another look. Fans of her award-winning Little Red (2016) will enjoy this feisty and intelligent heroine.
