Many see Time as a friend and many see Time as a foe. But for a sleeping beauty, Time was a promise. Born into royalty and surrounded by fairy godmothers, a sweet princess seems destined for a blissful life. But when a bitter fairy casts a curse, it will take true friends and true love to save her. The story of Sleeping Beauty has been told time and time again, but never has it been touched by the kind of magic found in this book. Newbery Medal-winner Cynthia Rylant's unforgettable retelling of the beloved fairytale is a lyrical read-aloud, and paired with Erin McGuire's vibrant illustrations, this is the perfect book for sharing with loved ones.
