Review: Verity is given a big task by fairy queen Tatiana, to keep Rapunzel company in her tower. It becomes much harder than she thought it would be as Rapunzel wants to explore the world and it makes her sad. With the wicked witch keeping her there and scaring Verity, her prince coming but never being able to free her it’s all up to Verity.

This was so sweet and I loved this new twist on Rapunzel’s story with her making friends with Verity. Verity struggled a lot within this story and had to overcome so much, she made mistakes and had to find ways to fix them and quickly. I liked the way they were written and resolved in a really simple way, and letting Verity figure it all out.

I really liked the way the wicked witch was in this, she was so different to how she is depicted in most other stories and it was really funny, she was mean and grouchy but also sad and lonely and just wanted friends and company. It was really interesting take on her character.

This book is filled with beautiful illustrations, it is really funny, fun and has great friendship throughout. It’s a perfect early reader for a child learning independent reading as it is simply written, big writing and a sweet and fun story too.
