Rene Shwartzbuckle, Rapunzel's mother, loves rampions and can't stop eating this turnip-like vegetable. She sends her husband, Walter, out to "borrow" some. Walter is caught in the garden by Witch Izwitch stealing rampions. To avoid having a spell cast on him, he agrees to give the witch his first born daughter, Rapunzel. So on Rapunzel's 16th birthday, the witch and the Glumpwarts show up, as promised, to take Rapunzel away.
This is a funny story with a strong message about the nature of beauty.
