Praise For Sleeping Beauty

"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
