Five paw prints! I know you think you know the story of Rapunzel. Her mother (really the evil witch) locks her in a tower, her hair grows long, the handsome prince rescues her, and they live happily ever after. Well, if this is the way you think the story ended you would be WRONG! Rapunzel didn’t need a prince to rescue her. She helped herself escape with her hair (of course), told the handsome prince where to go, and tries to find her real mother. Along the way she becomes friends with a boy named Jack, helps many people who were hurt by her “mother”, and she tries to find a way to have revenge on the “mother” who raised her. Not bad for an orphan with really long hair.
