Description
It's not easy being Princess Rose. Especially when a fairy curses you and you find yourself avoiding all sharp objects . . . and then end up pricking your finger anyway, causing you to slumber for a hundred years or so.

And it's not easy being The Prince. Especially when your mother has some ogre blood and tends to chow down at the most unfortunate moments. A walk in the woods would help, you think. Until you find a certain hidden castle . . . and a certain sleeping beauty. Happily ever after? Not until the prince helps the princess awaken . . . and brings her home to Mother.

Journey back to the days when fairy tales were true with this fun and fresh spin on a timeless tale.
