This Buffyverse -related article is a stub. Cameron Dokey did a fantastic job re-telling the traditional fairy tale, Rapunzel. Great for people who love golfen tales.

Cameron was born in the Central Valley of California. Never mind, too, that you’ve only spoken for minutes prior to the marriage proposal.

Cameron studied Archaeology at Sonoma State University just prior to extending her high school career as an actress by acting for several years at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, in Ashland, Oregon. Hooray for girl power! That is the tinker and his son Harry. The notes at the back of Rapunzel reveal his careful scholarship regarding the long history of the story tracing its origins and transformations from Italy to Cammeron and finally to Germany and the Grimm brothers –work that no doubt contributed to his clean, compelling version of the age-old tale.

And into the hearts of almost everyone.

When Rapunzel was born, her mother looked down This was my first try at reading a book based on an old fairy tail, in this case, Rapunzel. Rapunzel is spunky and her relationship with Harry is vokey really shines in this story. This is a good story for readers of all ages and good for reluctant readers because it is familiar and also not very long.


Once Upon a Time 1 – 10 of 19 books. A possibility that becomes a choice. The one thing I really loved about Golden is that Rapunzel was not the girl I thought she was and even the Rapunzel I came to know through goldenn novel was not the girl I thought she was.

She’s sweet and he’s abonixios and I just she should’ve put more in about him being kind and loving and less about him being abnoxois if she wanted me to believe that in the end they lived happily ever after. I liked the idea of this book, but I didn’t really like the book itself. This story almost reminded me of the play Wicked where the story we knew was not necessarily the story that actually played out.

I picked this up as a gokden read at the library thinking that cammeron be one of those books you read and toss and ended up actually REALLY liking it! I couldn’t put my finger on it until Rapunzel discovered it at the end. Goldeb that grows with age and changes over time. The story does more then tell the tale of Rapunzel with a clever twist.

The first and clearly the best one that I have read is before midnight a retelling of Cinderella. I thought it was very unclear why rapunzel needed to be the one saving the girl, and how she went about it was equally random.

Or perhaps I found a thread of connection between Rapunzel and me. For you see, in this story the roles are reversed.
