Sleeping Bobby

A beautiful baby, a sinister spell, a pricked finger, a hundred-year sleep, a true-love wake-up kiss.... we all know the story of Sleeping Beauty, but not the one that Will and Mary Pope Osborne tell. This version features a handsome prince named Bob, a feisty princess who wakes him from his enchanted slumber, and charming artwork from acclaimed illustrator Giselle Potter!

The cursed prince is doomed, of course, drawn by his curiosity and sense of adventure to prick his finger on a spindle when he turns 18. Soon, rumors spread that there's a handsome sleeping prince, hiding behind a thicket of thorns — but no woman has been able to get through. That won't stop one princess with her own taste for adventure, though, who declares, "If this Bob is all they say, it will take more than some shrubbery to keep me from meeting him."

A witty story and funny illustrations make this a perfect read aloud for anyone who enjoys fairy tales turned on their head!
