Rapunzel is a little hard of hearing in this uniquely twisted tale told in rhyme.  Though the prince pleads for her hair in many different ways, she always seems to get confused.  When he asks for her hair, she throws down her underwear.  Finally, she tosses down her maid, who falls immediately in love with the handsome prince.  He is equally charmed by her cuteness, and rides away with her.

A hilarious, zany story that children will adore.  Kids who love Dr. Seuss may be particularly partial to this book.
