Behind a hedge of tangled thorns, a palace sleeps, under the powerful spell of a wicked fairy - inside is Sleeping Beauty, waiting for the kiss of a handsome prince to awaken her from her long enchantment...This is a delightful new version of a traditional fairy tale, specially adapted by Lesley Young and carefully worded with lively text to appeal to all young readers. Every magical moment of this classic story is captured in bright, charming pictures by illustrator Jenny Press. It is perfect for reading aloud to small children, or for more confident readers to enjoy by themselves. When a king and queen have a beautiful baby girl, they host a huge feast to celebrate. They invite all the magical fairies, so that they may bless the newborn princess with luck and happiness. However, they neglect to invite one old fairy, who curses the child to die when she reaches sixteen years of age. This spell cannot be completely undone, but another fairy helps as much as she can - the princess will instead fall into a deep sleep that will last for a hundred years. How can the girl be freed from this fate? Read this timeless tale to find out...
