A stunningly illustrated version of the beloved fairy tale from a Caldecott Medalist, now digitally restored.

This retelling of a favorite fairy tale, illustrated by award-winning artist Trina Schart Hyman in an edition Publishers Weekly called "spellbinding," has been lovingly restored. Digital technology brings back the clarity and brightness of Hyman's original watercolor paintings to illuminate the terrifying woods, handsome prince, and Rapunzel's lustrous hair, as Hyman originally painted them.

Praise For Rapunzel

"Hyman’s iconic watercolor art, full of decoration and embellishment, has been 'lovingly restored' (through digital means) in this welcome reissue. The hues are crisp and bright, with everything from the emotive facial expressions to the filigreed borders looking rich and vibrant. Some may prefer their careworn edi-tions (and the 'dark, brooding romanticism' of the art, as characterized by the original Horn Book review, is now somewhat less so). But this volume should be embraced, especially by those new to Rogasky and Hyman’s retelling.The Horn Book
