Tuesday Variants

Rapunzel Needed a Haircut! The Story of Rapunzel as told by Dame Gothel by Jessica Gunderson, illustrated by Denis Alonso is hilarious.  But, as is true to some fairytales, this story goes astray from the original Rapunzel, and... I do not get how a mother-to-be would trade her new baby daughter for radishes.
This version is from the evil witch's point of view and has some great silly parts.  
The illustrations were created digitally and kids will love the cartoon-like pictures.  I'll use this title when showing second and third graders different versions of fairytales.
