Ratpunzel by Charlotte Guillain, illustrated by Dawn Beacon is an animal version of the well known tale of Rapunzel. In this title there is a beautiful rat kept captive by the mean cat. Instead of letting down her hair, it's a tail and when Prince Ratdolph hears this beautiful voice he is riding through the forest on a rabbit.
I fancied the colorful art. It's quirky and fun and the story stays fairly close to the traditional telling of Rapunzel, just with animals.
I think children and parents will enjoy this story and its cohort, Rumplesnakeskin by the same artist, author duo with their interesting twist to these stories.
