sleeper and spindle2Written by Neil Gaiman and beautifully illustrated by Chris Riddell, here is a feminist version of a classic fairy tale in between Snow White and Sleeping Beauty.On the eve of her wedding, a young queen sets out to rescue a princess from an enchantment. She casts aside her fine wedding clothes, takes her chain mail and her sword and follows her brave dwarf retainers into the tunnels under the mountain towards the sleeping kingdom. This queen will decide her own future – and the princess who needs rescuing is not quite what she seems… The Sleeper and the Spindle will hold you spellbound from start to finish. (F GAI)
