Waking Beauty



In this twisted little fairy tale, Prince Charming is not quite "with it." He wants to wake Sleeping Beauty and tries everything but the traditional method first, including jumping on her bed, screaming, and a cannon! Will he ever figure out how to wake her?

Waking Beauty is a delightfully irreverent spoof that will entertain boys and girls alike. The girls will enjoy the feminine details in the illustrations such as lots of pink, pretty patterns, and glitter. Boys will snicker at the outrageous things the prince does to wake the girl. Check this book out for a fun new take on an old story.

This is a fabulously funny book! It makes a great read aloud. In the groups I've read it to the boys love it just as much as the girls do.
