...at least loosely based, with 2010's "Tangled" created with inspiration from "Rapunzel" (which IS the name of the princess in the movie), and although our older grandson was only 2 and unable to sit still for the duration of a full length film (how many 2 year olds are?), I'd heard so many good things about it, with its blend of computer-generated imagery and traditional animation... there's a clip of the movie on one of the "Cars" DVDs we bought for our grandson, and while the illustrations in this book certainly are a step beneath the razz-a-ma-tazz of the film, I think it still does a decent job of giving the basic feel, and although from what I've read (having not seen the movie) there are parts that are left out (hard to condense a feature film down to 24 pages!), it seems to do a fine job of conveying the main aspects about this story of a princess who is stolen at birth for the healing powers of her magical hair, the thief who ends up rescuing her (after stealing her tiara!), and who doesn't love a story that ends with, "And they all lived happily after"?! We're happy we added this book to our Little Golden Book collection of short-reads based on the Disney movies... we wanted to give our grandsons (and perhaps a grandDAUGHTER - too early to tell - who's due in September) a taste of all of the Disney movies - the "oldies-but-goodies" that Grandma & Grandpa loved as children, as well as the newer ones. For the great majority, these 24 page books do the trick.
