Rapunzel (by Zelinsky) This retelling of Rapunzel draws on earlier French and Italian versions of the fairytale made famous by the Brothers Grimm. Whilst retaining familiar ingredients, it also restores elements of emotional complexity which - as is argued in an afterword on sources - were omitted in Grimm's bleaker view. The book has truly stunning colour illustrations in Italian Renaissance style - for which it was awarded the Caldecott Medal.
