It’s a shame; I love the legend of Mulan. This is a book I can definitely see myself reading again and again in the future. Don’t get me wrong, I love beauty and well established scenery in a story but the omens and portents simply went too far ocne it began to feel as if she stood back, looked at a thought, and determined that it simply wasn’t long enough.


She camerln simply very good at helping wishes come true. I really felt that the imagery was milked for all it was worth and then some and it really got under my skin.

Aug 12, Madison Ruth rated it it was amazing Shelves: Well, for a more accurate portrayal of ancient China, I’d pick my old Hong Kong dramas any time. Shelve The Crimson Thread: It is also known as Once Upon a Time Fairytales.

Before Rapunzel’s birth, her mother made a danger… More. It is so great that I find myself another fairytale retelling! When the sorcress explains that she has a daughter with long luscious blond hair who needs to find true love, Rapunzel needs to help.

They were sometimes unexpected and sometimes predictable but they were so beautiful and I loved them. She explained it well, but at the sane time I didn’t think it warranted the punishment that Rue received.

I have already requested some of her other re-tellings from my local library! Instead, it is she who helps someone else to do it, and she ends up with a common person who loves her for who she is, having seen her as she was but loving her anyway.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. By giving each character a cwmeron identity and a new background, it was easier cokey relate to the characters even though the stories are based around fantasies but instead of Cinderella having an evil stepmother in this book she has a stepmother who at first hesitates when it came to kindness but after learning about each others past they become closer.

And also, I loved how her father didn’t just vanish out of nowhere like the original one.
