Reading Beauty

Space Princess Lex loves to read, so she's shocked and heartbroken when she wakes up on her 15th birthday to find all of her books have disappeared! It turns out her parents are trying to protect her from a fairy's curse — a deathlike sleep via paper cut. But since Lex can't live without books, she decides it's up to her to bring books back to her kingdom. Maybe the knowledge she's gained from those books can go to good use convincing the fairy to set things right...

Set in the universe of the acclaimed Interstellar Cinderella, this irrepressible fairy tale retelling will charm young readers with its brave heroine, its star-studded setting, and its hilarious, heartwarming happy ending.

"Underwood attends to every detail of the original story with humor and creates characters readers will love. The busy illustrations use color, pattern, and costume to create an elaborate Afro-futuristic setting that enhances the story. A nifty addition to the shelves of feminist fractured fairy tales." — Kirkus Reviews
