Rapunzel (by Perkins) This edition of Rapunzel is one in a new series called 'Once Upon a World: Fairy Tales for Everyone Everywhere' which adds a multicultural slant to familiar stories. In this instance, while the story, simply told, is familiar, the illustrations show an Indian setting; Rapunzel has beautiful long brown hair and wears a gorgeous sari and golden anklets. Archana Sreenivasan's child friendly art work is bold and colourful and her depictions of the landscape use motifs familiar from Indian fabrics and show a sacred cow and horses with traditional saddles used in festivals and by warriors.
