‘Pterapunzel’ tells this story in a fun new way

I have been pretty impressed with the Once Before Time books. They have done a great job putting new spins on some well known stories. Cinderella Rex was a lot of fun to read, and Sleeping Bronty did a wonderful job adding new spins on this tale. When I heard about Pterapunzel I hoped I would get to read it. I was able to get a digital copy of this book and here is what I thought of it.

I had a great time reading this story. Although it started like most other versions of this story, it had some nice twists as it moved along. The new spins made it an exciting read, and the ending was pretty cool. If you are a fan of this series then this is a book you will want to read.
