A sumptuous retelling of the classic fairy tale SLEEPING BEAUTY with gorgeous full-color art that will bring this tale to life for a new generation of readers.

The classic tale of SLEEPING BEAUTY is retold by acclaimed author Adele Geras, and joined with detailed paintings that bring the story to life.

When the king and queen throw a banquet in honor of the birth of their daughter, they invite all of the fairies, but one, Skura, who attends the feast, seeking revenge. She curses the baby, but her evil intentions are undone by the good fairy who instead promises years of sleep.

The pages are trimmed with exquisite borders to give it a classic feel, and the lavish full-color art is highlighted with black and white sketches.
