New York Times bestselling and Newbery and Carnegie Medal-winning author Neil Gaiman has created a thrillingly reimagined fairy tale, "told in a way only Gaiman can" (, that the Guardian calls "a refreshing, much-needed twist on a classic story."

In this captivating and darkly funny tale, Neil Gaiman has twisted together the familiar and the new as well as the beautiful and the wicked to tell a brilliant version of Snow White's (sort of) and Sleeping Beauty's (almost) stories.
