Mother Knows Best by ArtistAbe Mother Knows Best by ArtistAbe
HAPPY HUNGER GAMES! :D
How do you immediately discourage a young lady from wanting to leave a tower to want to see the outside world she does not know?  Give her  a book where kids slaughter each other and tell her that's how the world is out there, of course :)

The original idea was to have Belle, from Beauty and the Beast, to  read the Hunger Games book since she's the bookworm type, but I really enjoyed the idea of Rapunzel using her hair to show her distress.  Mother Gothel smiling and lurking in the shadows was a very last minute addition that I felt was needed :)

I almost didn't draw this one after finding that the idea has already been done with some similar themes on google with both Belle and Rapunzel holding Hunger Games books that were photo manipulated from screen shots :(  2.bp.blogspot.com/-SnlTUiJUE6I…
I thought I'd do it anyways and just contribute to the growing gallery with my own take to it.

Grow some backbone Rapunzel, I swear American children have become too wimpy. Back when I was a child, you fell and cut your knee, you get back up. :unamused:

Me either, but if you were locked in a tower all your life without any connection to the outside world and someone told you that was how it was on the outside, it'd be pretty disturbing.
