The One with All the Hair: What a great subtitle!

Twice Upon a Time: Rapunzel (The One With All the Hair) by Wendy Mass; published by Scholastic, New York; 2005.

Rapunzel’s tale is told from two perspectives—the Prince Benjamin’s and Rapunzel’s—and is in the form of diary entries.  It is a riot to read the he-said-she-said stories and compare their respective perspectives (not to mention the fairly accurate portrayal of teen-speak).

I’d use this to discuss the concept of “two sides to every story.”  I think I’d also compile a set of books about Rapunzel for children who’d like to read more about her (and maybe include the Barbie movie version of the story).
