The Next Big Thing: Rapunzel

Rapunzel’s Revenge, written by Shannon and Dean Hale and illustrated by Nathan Hale (no relation), is already making waves! Estella’s Revenge has featured it in their latest zine, with the following glowing recommendation:

In my house, it is very rare that my 8-year-old and 12-year-old daughters will agree on anything, let alone both agreeing with each other and with both of their parents. This miracle happened recently, however, by the time we all finished Shannon and Dean Hale’s most excellent graphic novel.

And Al Roker has picked it for his kids’ book club — a mighty coup.

Salt Lake, you are lucky we’re here. We’ve already planned a huge party to celebrate the release! Shannon, Dean and Nathan will all be there, plus six more fantastic local authors: Ann Cannon, James Dashner, Jessica Day George, Mette Ivie Harrison, Kimberly Heuston, and Sara Zarr, each of whom has a new book out. So mark your calendars for August 23rd at the Foothill Library, and keep your eye on the blog for posts leading up to the event, featuring each author and their new book!
