Rapunzel's Jukebox Singer
A college bookstore operator in Boston in "real life," Andrew Mitchell lends us his musical talent when not performing with his funk/soul band, The Othership. Andrew has handled the vocals for most Rapunzel's Jukebox songs, often devising fun arrangements spanning everything from guitar to trombone to kazoo (the third of those being a tribute to his late father, who used to perform as "King Kazoo").
“I love Not Your Mother's Goose. I’ve read it at least a hundred times. Of course, I am locked in a tower with nothing to do . . .” Rapunzel
“Not too long. Not too short. This book is just right.” Goldilocks
“It’s great. Honest. No, seriously.” Pinocchio
“Loved it! The pages tasted great!” The Big Bad Wolf
“Who the hell are you to call me a bozo? I suppose you have never traded your last cow for some “magic” beans. You’ll be hearing from my lawyers.”
“If you’re looking for a book that combines the raw emotion of the Hunger Games, the fantasy of Harry Potter, and the suspense of a John Grisham thriller, this is probably not that book.” Horace Q. Dufongle, Publisher’s Monthly
