Everyone knows the story of Sleeping Beauty: A handsome prince rescues a beautiful princess from a wicked fairy's terrible sleeping spell.
This story is just like the original. Except for the sarcastic frog narrator, the garlic-scented fairy, and--oh yeah--the princess in this book not only sleeps and snores . . . she's also been turned into a hot-pink and purple dragon
Certain to charm and delight fairy tale fans across the land, this raucous retelling is anything but a snoozer.
Howard Fine is the illustrator of many popular picture books, including Clarion's best-selling Piggie Pie! He lives with his family in White Plains, New York.
