Publisher's Summary

Bewitched by a spell, by a fairy godmother that was in a bad mood that day, poor little Sleeping Beauty gets stuck by a needle through her hand, and faints instantly into sleep for 100 years. Her castle is overtaken by the woods, and her servants have been put under a spell of sleep as well. Who finds Sleeping Beauty, and how does he wake her up? What happens to her servants, and the castle? The tale is unraveled by the narration of Kathy Verduin.

Classic Sleeping Beauty true to the original tale

What did you love best about Sleeping Beauty?

Delightful telling of the beloved tale for those who love the original, richness of fairy tales. Details and characters differ from the all too familiar Disney retelling, lending freshness to the story.

Which character – as performed by Kathy Verduin – was your favorite?

The old woman with the spinning wheel has a wonderfully realistic tremor to her voice. <br/>Sleeping Beauty sounds young, eager and perfectly imperious as a young princess would do.

Any additional comments?

The narration of this book is clear and well paced for a young child. The tale does not "talk down" to children with overly simplistic vocabulary.
