How the library (not the prince) saved Rapunzel

O'Shea-Meddour, Wendy, author; Ashdown, Rebecca, artist

No one can rouse her from her apathy, not the milkman or the postman or the baker or her aunt - or even the prince. But when at last a letter is delivered, it contains news that has Rapunzel on her feet again. She has a new job at the library! And suddenly her life is busy, sparkling, exciting, and stimulating
