The Sleeper and the SpindleThe Sleeper and the Spindle by Neil Gaiman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It’s hard for me to resist a Neil Giaman story, especially if the story is read by him! That’s not including most of his books are a bit dark and humorous at times. This story did not let me down. This story is a twist on Snow White and Sleeping Beauty. It’s a bit darker but notheless a great story to listen to while driving. If you like twisted fairy tales then go get this book! It’s awesome!

Book Summary:
A thrillingly reimagined fairy tale from the truly magical combination of author Neil Gaiman and illustrator Chris Riddell – weaving together a sort-of Snow White and an almost Sleeping Beauty with a thread of dark magic, which will hold readers spellbound from start to finish.

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. Twisting together the familiar and the new, this perfectly delicious, captivating and darkly funny tale shows its creators at the peak of their talents.

Lavishly produced, packed with glorious Chris Riddell illustrations enhanced with metallic ink, this is a spectacular and magical gift.
