This comment from a netizen, who claims to personally know the author, explained what the book was actually about.

Apparently, the book is about a young girl who wants to be like Rapunzel and looks up to the character, so she decides to take fate into her own hands by making a long tudung, since she couldn’t grow long hair!

When you think about it, this story teaches a valuable lesson to kids and shows that we can be in charge of making our own dreams come true, regardless of our circumstances.

Well, this is definitely a prime example of why we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover!
