Publisher's Summary

In this stand-alone fairy tale, Princess Annie is the younger sister to Gwen, the princess destined to be Sleeping Beauty. When Gwennie pricks her finger and the whole castle falls asleep, only Annie is awake, and only Annie-blessed (or cursed?) with being impervious to magic - can venture out beyond the rose-covered hedge for help. She must find Gwen's true love to kiss her awake. But who is her true love? The irritating Digby? The happy-go-lucky Prince Andreas, who is holding a contest to find his bride? The conniving Clarence, whose sinister motives couldn't possibly spell true love? Joined by one of her father's guards, Liam, who happened to be out of the castle when the sleeping spell struck, Annie travels through a fairy tale land populated with characters both familiar and new as she tries to fix her sister and her family - and perhaps even find a true love of her own.

    Story
    "Smart and fun take on fairy tales"

    My 5 and 7 year old girls were both riveted by this story. Lots of good adventure and a practical princess heroine to appreciate. We are now going on to listen to it a second time.

    Story
    "A story that made me happy."
    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    at the very end this story pulled together suspense and yanked a smile out of tears but I guess I may just be an emotional person.

    Story
    "An excellent fairytale adventure!"
    If you could sum up The Wide-Awake Princess in three words, what would they be?

    Magical, wonderful, entertaining!


    What other book might you compare The Wide-Awake Princess to, and why?

    The story is based loosley around traditional fairy tales, such as sleeping beauty and hansel and grettel. However, the story has a unique take on all of these, as the writer has cleverly adapted them to fit into a much bigger story, the quest of Annie (the wide awake princess). Also the heroine, Annie, is unique from any other fantasy story I have read, in that she is unaffected by magic. I really liked this aspect as it made the story all the more unique and interesting.


    What about Emily Bauer’s performance did you like?

    I really enjoyed Emily Bauer's performance. Her voice remained engaging, and animated throughout.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No real emotional reaction, there were points which were amusing although I wouldn't say it say it was hilarious, but I don't think it needed to be either.


    Any additional comments?

    I thououghly enjoyed this book. I am looking forward to adding the other two books in the series to my library collection sometime soon. If you enjoy fantasy/adventure stories I would certainly recommend this book!
