The Sleeper and the Spindle

£12.99

From a translucent cover, to the emergence of the Queen as a warrior hero, ‘The Sleeper and the Spindle‘ is not a traditional retelling of ‘Sleeping Beauty’, but a tale of menace, difference and diversity. The dwarfs charged from buying the Queen the ‘finest silken cloth in Dorimar’ are not thwarted by discouraging borders or warnings of plague. Their Queen is not overwhelmed by spells, long-rotten would-be heroic corpses, impassable rose thorns, opportunities for power, or reader and traditional expectation……

The Sleeper and the Spindle‘ is a most splendid and fascinating picture book for all ages.
