A Fairy Tale for the Fearless
Gareth P Jones, illustrated by Loretta Schauer
Rabunzel the rabbit is a cheery soul, bounding through the forest. But she has grown very very long ears and her mother fears these might prevent her from escaping the hungry woodland predators. So Mum decides Rabunzel must hide out for safety in a tree house/hutch at the top of a very tall tree. She must only lower her ears so that Mum can bring her food.
Being stuck in the hutch with a only a daily visit from Mum is a bit boring. One day however, an adventurous hare called Flash Harry happens along and is smitten. He determines to save Rabunzel, even though she doesn’t much want to saved. Flash Harry’s cations however, put her in peril as the hungry animals circle around.
The solution to escaping is very funny and very ingenious! This is a charming and laugh-out loud picture book, that uses narrative and rhyme to excellent effect. The illustrations are bright and animated.
