A Rapunzel Audiobook Story

Rapunzel is locked at the top of a tall tower which has no doors and no stairs. Why is she locked away? And why does she have such golden hair Rapunzel is the perfect story if you are looking for a tale that highlights the consequences of giving into temptation and making selfish choices, whilst also exploring the power of love and redemption. Our retelling of Rapunzel focuses on themes of wanting something, sacrifice, love and redemption. Rapunzel is undoubtedly one of the most famous folk tales in the world with thousands of variations told throughout the centuries. The Sooper Books version of Rapunzel is inspired by the most popular  adapted version from the Brothers Grimm, first published in their collection of Grimm’s Fairy Tales in 1812 - however the original story dates back even further than that.

Why do we write bedtime stories for kids?

When we first decided to create a bedtime story for kids, we knew we wanted it to be fun, engaging and high quality.

We wanted Sooper Books to bring children's publishing into the 21st century. We strongly believe that nighttime stories for kids need to fit seamlessly into modern family lives which is why our free stories are all online.

It began when we started writing stories for our own family. Then our friends and wider families asked for copies and we started to share Sooper Books with other children.

At Sooper Books we write, curate and narrate stories for kids so they can enjoy the best quality content, enchanting stories and magical adventures. With our stories we work towards promoting a positive attitude to reading and instill a love of books in children from an early age.
