THE SLEEPER AND THE SPINDLE
(W) Neil Gaiman (A/CA) Chris Riddell
In this thrillingly reimagined fairy tale from the truly magical combination of author Neil Gaiman and illustrator Chris Riddell, the tales of Snow White (sort of) and Sleeping Beauty (almost) are woven together with a thread of dark magic. On the eve of her wedding, a young queen sets out to rescue a princess from an enchantment. The queen casts aside her fine wedding clothes, takes up her chain mail and her sword, and follows her three brave dwarf companions into the tunnels under the mountain toward the sleeping kingdom, intent on saving the princess and deciding her own future. Alas, the princess who needs rescuing is not quite what she seems. The result is a captivating and darkly funny tale that will hold readers spellbound from start to finish.
"If this book isn’t quite a masterpiece, it’s certainly a treasure, and that’s more than enough." - Kirkus starred review.
