A humorous and tender re-telling of the well-known fairy tale. This version gives the beautiful princess time to have her say before she falls victim to a wicked fairy’s spell and falls asleep for one hundred years until a very determined but rather different prince, rides to her rescue on his bicycle. Young readers enjoy it and adults reading this lively tale aloud to small listeners will find plenty to entertain them along the way, too.
Beautifully illustrated by Paola Escobar with a crowd of colourful characters and a subtle hint at how things can change in the passing of a century.
