->''Moonstone, topaz, opal: the emerald's tapestry does unfold.\\
Tread lightly to the Lost Lagoon, holding treasures vast, untold.''

''Rapunzel and the Lost Lagoon'' is a 2017 novel written by Leila Howland and published by Disney, about Rapunzel, the 10th Franchise/DisneyPrincess and protagonist of the 50th Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon movie.

The first part takes place one week after the ending of the film, ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'', and the second part six months later, after ''WesternAnimation/TangledBeforeEverAfter''. The book starts with Rapunzel being introduced to Cassandra, her handmaiden (who plays an important role in ''WesternAnimation/TangledTheSeries''). Rapunzel and Cassandra alternate being first-person narrators throughout the book.

The plot kicks off when Rapunzel finds an ancient book, "The Lost Lagoon", in the library. It speaks of an ancient, secret lagoon that might be filled with precious gems. With Cassandra's knowledge of the geography of Corona, Rapunzel and she soon find the lagoon and some blue gems in it, but can't figure out anything special about the gems or how they "work".

Time skip to six months later; in the meantime the events of ''Tangled Before Ever After'' happen, like Rapunzel getting back her long magical hair after touching the black rocks. Rapunzel en Cassandra now decide to ask the knowledgeable Xavier for information about Corona's history, before going back to the lagoon to further investigate.

In the meantime, Rapunzel is also very busy with her duties as a princess, especially with a big festival in Corona coming up soon.

!!This book provides examples of:
* AffectionateNickname: Eugene nicknames Rapunzel "Sunshine" in this book. Fitting, as she literally has a sundrop in her.
* BadLiar: When Cassandra realises Rapunzel told Eugene of the black rocks, Eugene tries to deny this, but Cassandra sees he's lying. Downplayed in that Cassandra, as an aspiring guard, is trained in detecting lying.
* BookWorm: Rapunzel really likes books and reading and goes all {{Squee}} when Eugene shows her the library. She takes a big pile of books with her.
* {{ChekhovsSkill}}: Cassandra and Rapunzel are practicing to master a martial arts move called the Winged Monster, because Cassandra needs the skill to get into the royal guards. At the end however, [[spoiler:they use the move to defeat the person who threatening them in order to find the Lost Lagoon.]]
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Ms. Tasha, the matchmaker that Rapunzel hires, uses some methods which are considered strange by the other characters, such as aura reading. Cassandra even outright calls her a "loon".
* ColorMotifs: The chapter titles, page numbers and some small illustrations are in purple ink, standing out from the rest of the text which is just in black. Purple is strongly associated with Rapunzel, as her signature dress is that color, because GracefulLadiesLikePurple. Ms. Tasha even says Rapunzel's aura is purple.
* ContinuityNod: Some things that happened in the movie are mentioned:
** Rapunzel recalls that she hit Eugene on the head with a frying pan when she met him.
** Rapunzel remarks that she only used to read three books: one about cooking, one about geology, one about botany.
** In the movie, "Flynn Ryder" was revealed to be a name from a book that Eugene took on. Now, Rapunzel actually finds and reads this book.
** Cassandra notes that Eugene is trying to use "the smolder" on her to convince her to tell something, but like when he tried it on Rapunzel, it's a NoSell.
* DemotedToExtra:
** Pascal plays a much smaller role than in the movie.
** Maximus is only mentioned in passing.
* DoesNotLikeShoes: Like in the film and series, Rapunzel hates wearing shoes, and one of the first things she does in the story is to kick them off.
* FirstPersonPerspective: The book is written in the first person, with Rapunzel and Cassandra alternating as narrators.
* FishOutOfWater: Rapunzel has a hard time adjusting to to the court and learning "royal behavior".
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: Having just gotten out of her tower for the first time in 18 years, Rapunzel longs for friends. She soon becomes friends with Cassandra. Later, when she's trying to become friends with Dahlia as well and this causes friction with Cassandra, she literally says to Cassandra "I just want to have friends".
* LessonsInSophistication: Rapunzel's parents make her take lessons in "acting royal" and having good manners; she needs this because she spent the first 18 years of her life locked up in a tower. Eugene is versed in the court's ways too, though in his case it isn't because of lack of life experience, but because he was a thief.
* LoyalAnimalCompanion:
** Pascal is always by Rapunzel's side, and much loved by her.
** Cassandra has a scouting Owl, which also is a beloved pet of hers.
--->'''Cassandra:''' ''[About Owl]'' Here was a friend: steady, true, and loyal.
* RealityEnsues: At the end of the movie, Rapunzel was reunited with her birth parents, accepted her role as princess, and got together with Eugene. All of that only sounds like a pure happy ending, but this book starts with her hating the "lessons in royal behaviour" she has to follow now, and feeling awkward towards her newfound parents even though she loves them, because she never knew them.
* SpannerInTheWorks: Cassandra sees the return of long-lost princess Rapunzel as nothing but annoying, because it hinders her (Cassandra's) joining the royal guards. She also thinks Rapunzel's return is distracting the existing royal guards from doing more important work, like defending the borders.
* SweetTooth: One of the first things Cassandra notes about Rapunzel is that this princess eats a lot of candy. Later, Rapunzel reads a cookbook, and all the recipes she lists are for cakes and other sweets. She also repeatedly stocks up on blueberry cake in a bakery whenever she goes into town.
* SwitchingPOV: Rapunzel narrates half of the chapters so the reader experiences them from her P.O.V., while Cassandra takes turns for the other half.
* TastesLikePurple: Rapunzel apparently has a tendency towards synaesthesia, as she remarks that something "was so white it practically had a sound".
* {{Tomboy}}: Even more than in the series, Cassandra makes it clear she does ''not'' like girly things, hates wearing dresses or high heels, and she much rather wants to fight in the royal guard than be Rapunzel's hand maiden.
* TrueLove: According to a matchmaker with psychic abilities, Rapunzel and Eugene have the best-matching aura's ever and are meant to be together.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Cassandra has had a terrifying fear of water since she was young, and never learned to swim. She points out the irony of this because of how many, many bodies of water Corona has. She goes out to find a lagoon, and when she finds it, she realises she'll have to dive in it to find the gems, but she's afraid to.
