Surely among the most original and gifted of children's book illustrators, Paul O. Zelinsky has once again brought forth a unique vision for an age-old tale. 

His retelling of RAPUNZEL reaches back beyond the Grimm Brothers to a late-seventeenth-century French tale by Mlle. la Force, who based hers on the Neapolitan tale, Petrosinella. His original oil paintings showcase, not an ugly witch who cruelly imprisons a beautiful young girl, but a mother figure who powerfully resists her child's inevitable growth, and a young woman and man who must struggle in the wilderness for the self-reliance that is the true beginning of their adulthood.

He was awarded the Caldecott Medal for this incredibly beautiful book.

Hardcover, with sleeve. He also illustrated RUMPELSTILTSKIN, sold separately.
