Praise For Sleeping Beauty

"The watercolors are soft but dramatic and transporting." Kirkus Reviews on Maja Dusikova's illustrations for Rapunzel



"Dusikova’s delicate line-and-watercolor illustrations capture the drama and mystery of the tale, while portraying the characters with individuality and including details for children to discover. A new edition of an old tale that is familiar, yet strange, and strangely powerful."- Booklist on Sleeping Beauty
