It was the closest kingdom to the queen's, as the crow flies, but not even the crows flew it. You may think you know this story. There's a young queen, about to be married. There are some good, brave, hardy dwarfs; a castle, shrouded in thorns; and a princess, cursed by a witch, so rumor has it, to sleep forever. But no one is waiting for a noble prince to appear on his trusty steed here. This fairy tale is spun with a thread of dark magic, which twists and turns and glints and shines. A queen might just prove herself a hero, if a princess needs rescuing. . . .

I checked out the audio book and hard copy of the book at the same time, intending to follow along in the book as it was read to my daughter and me. I didn't like that the audio book skipped the parts of the story around the dialogue, which is where descriptions of characters were nestled and bits of story even. It even skips an entire paragraph in which a major plot twist dawns on the queen. NOT a well-done reading. (The story is still good, even if this reading is not--that is why it has more than one star.)

This was a quirky look at a favourite fable. I think it breathes actual life into the characters

An enchanting and topsy-turvy take on the Sleeping Beauty fable, the dwarves, and even Snow White, cleverly told, surprising, and very short, just one disc!
