Ellie Crowe

Author Ellie Croweabout her book: The Princess has been stuck in the Purple Tower for twelve long years. Winds wail, waves crash on the tower's dark stone -- and a wicked witch and a fat green spider guard the door. Now the wicked witch has cut the Princess'long golden hair and is spinning it to gold! Will a brave Prince on a white horse ever come to rescue her? Or will the super brave Princess get out of there on her own. A brilliant version of the well-known Rapunzel tale. Fun rhyming text by award-winning author Ellie Crowe and gorgeous, imaginative illustrations by talented UK illustrator Janet King. Great for young children.

I love retold -- or fractured -- fairytales and this book was really fun to write. I was thrilled when Janet King agreed to illustrate the story -- I'm sure you'll agree that each illustration is a perfect work of art. I hope my imaginative readers will draw some pictures of their own and send them to me at I'd also love to hear what their favorite fairytale is and how they think it could be retold.
