This enchanting story by Maribeth Boelts is perfect for readers who are fans of princesses, pets, or both! The clever twist on the classic tale of Rapunzel features an adorable cocker spaniel named Pupunzel. The sweet pup with long golden fur is brought to life through illustrator Hollie Hibbert's engaging pictures. When a witch takes Pupunzel away and locks her in a tall tower, it's up to Pupunzel's family to rescue her. The delightfully sweet ending may inspire readers to read this “happily-ever-after” tale again and again.
Tie-in Activity: The Nose Knows
Pupunzel knew the witch smelled like an old pickle inside a wet shoe. Yuck! See if your little one can identify some better-smelling objects. Place some distinctive-smelling items such as a ripe banana or a cut lemon inside a paper bag, then see if your child can guess what's in the bag.
