  • A popular novelist may be prone to looking at the whole of their oeuvre. They consider their past works, look to the future, and decide to write a graphic novel. What makes them do this? Is it the potential to reach whole new audiences? Is it the accessibility of the format? The trendiness of it all? Or it is something else? Could it be that graphic novels are the wave of the future? Could be. Certainly they offer an author a whole new way of looking at the literary format. Why an enterprising y [...]

  • A fresh, funny take on the Rapunzel fairy tale. Set in the Old West, Rapunzel's braids prove to be useful as more than just a ladder as she lassos her way to freedom along with her cohort, Jack.Shannon and Dean's clever dialogue and hilarious narration are just that: clever and hilarious. In fact, I think they should collaborate on more projects, but as with any graphic novel, I'm into it for the pictures, and Nathan Hale does not disappoint. (I'm also a huge fan of his picture books, so I wasn' [...]

  • “Rapunzel’s Revenge” is an awesome retelling of the classic Brothers Grimm tale “Rapunzel” by Shannon and Dean Hale along with illustrations by Nathan Hale (no relation). “Rapunzel’s Revenge” is a brilliant tale of adventure and romance that both children and adults will enjoy for centuries!Shannon and Dean Hale has done a great job with writing their first graphic novel together and they make the story both exciting and dramatic at the same time. Shannon and Dean Hale had brilli [...]

  • Hale, Shannon and Dean. 2008. Rapunzel's Revenge. Illustrated by Nathan Hale.Rapunzel's Revenge is a graphic novel. A great graphic novel of an empowered and spunky Rapunzel who's on a quest for revenge. Really there are no words for how much fun this one is. It does begin in a familiar way, "Once upon a time, there was a beautiful little girl" and it is loosely based on the fairy talebut most of the story is original and fun and wonderful. The book really begins to take off when Rapunzel rescue [...]

  • Loved this. My daughter had read it first and kept saying I should read it, too, so finally she got me to read it to her for her bedtime story. Very well done, great art, great characters, good touches of humor, and Rapunzel is a strong heroine.

  • Rapunzel doesn’t know there’s anything wrong with her life – a gorgeous villa, plenty of food, servants and guards, a powerful mother named Mother Gothel – until she manages to finally scale the high wall that surrounds her opulent home. Beyond it lies an industrial wasteland, starving workers policed by vicious guards, and… Rapunzel’s real mother, a worker dressed in rags whose baby was taken from her by Mother Gothel. Rapunzel furiously confronts Mother Gothel, who has her taken aw [...]

  • Shannon Hale has taken a classic fairy tale, added in a dash of Jack (of Beanstalk fame) and set it in the wild, wild west, and told in a graphic novel format. When privileged Rapunzel discovers her "mother" took her from her birth mother and is destroying the surrounding lands, her objections land her in the famous tower. Rather than waiting for rescue by a prince, this Rapunzel uses her own gifts to escape and seeks reunion and retribution. Along the way, she becomes a bit of an outlaw/rogue. [...]

  • This graphic novel is on the Middle School Battle of the Books list. The use of artwork to create a story is skilfully woven into the plot. In fact, there are entire sequences told via the graphics which require no words. That is what a graphic novel should bee synthesis of two different genres to create a third. The story is a modern-day version of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale, but with clever twists and sub-plots. Very enjoyable.

  • Rapunzel's Revenge was a fun, entertaining graphic novel by Shannon Hale. It was a quick read that I enjoyed (besides the scenes with witchy someone or another), and I may read the sequel someday! *smiles*

  • Have you ever seen a film - or read a book - and thought, "This has everything"? In hindsight it is an absurd and childish phrase. Because no story that has ever been told has "everything" in it, for nothing is so varied and good that it could please everyone. Even the word "epic" means different things to different people. But after finishing 'Rapunzel's Revenge' - created by the wife-and-husband team Shannon and Dean Hale - I found myself thinking exactly that, while also dealing with a tidal [...]

  • This was a good, quick read and I enjoyed it. It was great how it incorporated a range of different fairytales.

  • When I first started this, I have to say I was pretty iffy.  There's a bit to get through to get to the 'current' story, and I don't know that I've ever read info-dumping in graphic novel form.  It wasodd.  It made me feel really disconnected, and I wasn't sure I was going to like this.  But once Rapunzel is banished to her high, um, tower of sorts, it started to pick up, and it took off when Jack entered the story -- it was enjoyable from that point on.There was great humor in unexpected mo [...]

  • As a child, I loved fairy tales, but as I’ve grown older I’ve started to see their flaws. One of the things that have struck me the most is their portrayal of women. You can be Rapunzel, the beautiful, goodhearted maiden that must be rescued by the handsome prince, or the evil, ugly witch that locks her in the tower. With all of the modernizations of fairy tales released in the past several years, these stereotypes are often turned on their heads. Rapunzel’s Revenge is a great example of t [...]

  • This review can also be found on my blog: graphicnovelty2/2017/02/0Continuing with my fairy tale theme, this week we meet Rapunzel- who is a spunky red headed cowgirl who can lasso her hair like no one’s business!We first meet Rapunzel as a pre-teen who lives in a lush villa with her mother and servants. She is adequately cared for but not coddled by her stern mother, but is plagued by a dream of being loved by another couple. As she starts to question why the walls are so high around her home [...]

  • Reviewed by Rebecca Wells for TeensReadTooOnce upon a time, in a land very far away, there lived a girl with her mother. Every day as the girl grew and played, she also became more and more curious about the world outside. One day she finally climbed up her wall and discovered that she really knew nothing at all. And that was when she decided to do something about it. Think you know Rapunzel? You've never heard it like this! With a feisty heroine who uses her ridiculously long hair as a weapon a [...]

  • When I first saw this title I hadn't realized that it was a graphic novel. As a rule I tend to avoid them since (at least to me) they don't seem like real books, but since I love Shannon Hale,s work I decided to give it a chance.I enjoyed it a lot more than what I expected. It is a very unique and cool retelling of Rapunzel's story. It was more like she was a comic book hero (which wasn't bad), I guess what I'm trying to say is that I thought it was pretty cool that she had killer braids. We are [...]

  • "Now with a name like the Devil's Armpit, you'd think it'd be a right jolly place. -We didn't sleep much at night." My first foray into the land of graphic novels was very entertaining. What's not to like about a red-headed chick with a scorpion tale hair braid and a stinging attitude to match it! Throw in a handsome, mysterious sidekick, an evil stepmother, plants and animals with serious growth issues, and you have a modernized version of the classic fairy tale. Without giving too much away, m [...]

  • We've been reading different versions of fairy tales and we recently discovered this graphic novel at our local library. It's the first book in the Rapunzel's Revenge series by Shannon Hale, Dean Hale and Nathan Hale. It's a wild west retelling of the classic tale, with some interesting twists, danger and some romance thrown in for good measure.It was a quick, entertaining read and I enjoyed how the authors incorporated different fairy tales into the one story. I love how spunky and adventurous [...]

  • I'll be honest -- this is the first graphic novel I have ever read. I was drawn to it because of the attractive artwork - the illustrator did a great job and the colors literally jump off the page. I was torn between giving it a 3 star rating or a 4 star rating. It was easy to read and interesting. Having just watched "Tangled" a few weeks ago, I found this interpretation of Rapunzel's story interesting. The authors took the basic elements of Rapunzel's story and added some more fantasy elements [...]

  • When Repunzel discovers the woman she has always called mother stole her away from her family as a child and is sucking the life out of the land, she knows that she must use all of her meager skills to return the land to its fertile origins. With the help of her new friend Jack and his crazy goose Goldy, Punzie finds an inner strength and a community ready to come together to take down the most evil witch of all. This a cute story that mixes the Brothers Grimm with Mother Goose and throws in a t [...]

  • My first graphic novel read!And, sorry graphic novels, I enjoy written word better. This is obviously, Rapunzel. The little pictures capture and tell the story so well but I would have loved intense descriptions and reading more. On the other hand, my daughter Julia, loves it. She keeps sneaking it into her bed at night to read when she thinks I am not looking. I think it's giving her a bridge from a typical picture book with not so much plot shown in images that she can follow some of the passa [...]

  • 4.5 stars.Despite the (view spoiler)[happily ever after, which I can accept since this is supposed to be a fairy tale retelling (hide spoiler)], I loved this entire story. Rapunzel is badass and isn't afraid to whack tropes on their heads with her braids. Her linking "commentary" throughout created a very readable style, and the pacing of the adventures were very well done. Nothing ever seemed over done or completely useless to the quest. The artwork is very eye-catching and really compliments t [...]

  • My first graphic novelMy last graphic novel?.I like that Hale is making an effort to revive the old fairy tales. Okay I love that. However, I'm not a big fan of Calamity Jane or the old west but some how Rapunzel became Calamity Jane, only with really long hair. So this book wasn't really about Rapunzel and an old fairy tale but about Calamity Jane. I'm sure everyone else will love it, I was bored.She definitely threw some "I am woman, I can take cake of myself" stuff in there too. Why must ever [...]

  • This was fun! Such a unique and spunky version of the Rapunzel story - with a little Jack and the Beanstalk thrown in for good measure - and I'm sure I also saw some dwarves and a jackalope! (My second book with a jackalope.) A great collaboration by Shannon and Dean Hale with illustrations by Nathan Hale (no relation). I look forward to the sequel.

  • This was cute, laugh out loud, smile n sigh, graphic novel. (meaning basically a comic book the length of a novel graphic as in pictures!) I loved the illustrations, especially the expressions on some of the characters faces at times! :) This western tale of a girl with twenty-foot braids, and a boy with a quick sense of humor and a knack for stealing is a clean, fun read!

  • While this book was very entertaining, it had quite a bit of magical elements I didn't appreciate. Spells, witches, etc. This is set in a fairytale land which was pretty interesting!Despite the fact that I didn't like the magic, I'll be reading the next book. :)

  • Cute take. Of all the fairy tale princesses I have thought Rapunzel to be the dimmest--sitting all by herself with two long "ropes" to use for escape. So yeah for Hale empowering Rapunzel to wait for no one and save herself.
