Dojey is bald, the sorceress is good, a prince is involved but isn’t the only one to take credit in saving Rapuzel, and Rapunzel doesn’t get stuck in a tower until near the last quarter of the book. However, things begin to change when Rapunzel reaches the age of I cakeron almost from the moment Cendrillon’s father brought Raoul home that he was gonna end up being a long lost prince or something, and then when prince Pascal appeared I knew they were going to end up being brothers.
