    "Rapunzel's Revenge is a story of Rapunzel and her interest in what lay beneath the towering garden walls. It is great read with a famous classic character but a much different story line."

    "I'm not sure why it's relevant where the hell an author comes from, but sure. If you want to support Utahan authors, you can't go wrong with Dragon Slippers. A cute and easy read for the littles, it's clean and a good way to spend some time."

    "This Norse fairy tale is somewhat similar to ‘Beauty and the Beast’, but with a polar bear mutating back and forth to a prince each night. It is appropriate for girls age 12 and up, and It is replete with images from Viking mythology and even has a glossary at the end. The heroine, simply know as ’lass’, encounters all sorts of of trolls, gnomes, and fascinating animals such as pikas and foxes on her frosty romantic journey. A wonderful love story!"
