My favorite page is Rapunzel facing the window inside her tower, and the face and hand of the Prince coming over the windowsill. The look in their eyes - how did Rachel Isadora capture that expression? I can't believe how amazing it is. Then, the very next page is a silhouette of the two of them holding hands with the night sky out the window, and Rapunzel's hair goes flowing across the entire second page. Oh, it is unbelievable.
Now then, you should know that Rapunzel and her Prince "exchange vows" in her tower room, and then he proceeds to ... ahem... "visit" her every night. Get it? The Sorceress finds out about the Prince when Rapunzel's dress gets a little too tight because she is pregnant.
Now, personally, you might choose to read that part of the story as "Oh, Sorceress, how come when you climb up, you feel so HEAVY, but when my Prince climbs up, he's not heavy at all?"
book twice one for my great-granddaughter who is very much into the classic Princess tales and another for my great-niece. Both loved the book . As a retire educator books are my favorite gift for children, especially in this media driven society.
