Waking Beauty Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Everyone knows Sleeping Beauty has to be woken with a kiss, except Prince Charming. Every time the fairies watching over her try to tell him, he interrupts with his ideas of how to wake her. Eventually he gets the message, and his reaction is priceless: ?One hundred years of morning breath Wow! That could be the kiss of death!?

With just as much interactive fun as Falling for Rapunzel (an IRA Notable Book and the winner of Maryland?s Black-Eyed Susan Picture Book Award), this fractured fairy tale will elicit laughter that no one will be able to sleep through.

Review:

"The creators of Falling for Rapunzel offer another creatively warped version of a familiar tale, again pairing chipper rhymed couplets with dynamic mixed-media art. In search of dragons to slay, Prince Charming believes he has found his prey when he hears a 'dreadful sound' coming from a castle — but it is only the snoring of Sleeping Beauty. The three tiny fairies who surround her bed try their best to tell the prince how to wrench the maiden from her slumbers, but each time the rhyming fairies are about to pronounce the word 'kiss,' he interrupts them with another futile stab at waking Beauty (he tries jumping on the bed, pouring water on her head and shooting her out of a cannon, after which he fishes her from the moat). Featuring textured, patterned fabrics and robust rosy hues, Monks's illustrations incorporate funny flourishes, among them spiders spinning webs and mice cavorting by Beauty's bedside. A surprise ending will leave readers thoroughly roused. Ages 3-up." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Everyone knows Sleeping Beauty must be awakened with a kiss--except for Prince Charming. Every time the fairies watching over her try to tell him, he interrupts with his ideas of how to wake her. Eventually he gets the message, and his reaction is priceless. Full color.

Synopsis:

Papa Bear, Mama Bear, and Baby Bear know how to rock! But they need a new singer, so they audition everyone—the Three Pigs, Little Red Riding Hood, and more. To their dismay, no one seems just right.

 

Could the perfect lead singer be the mysterious girl sleeping on Baby Bears keyboard?

This mash up of Goldilocks and the Three Bears and The Voice is a surefire storytime hit.
