A clever new twist on a well-known tale, full of hilarious fairy-tale references.
When Sleeping Beauty pricks her finger on a spinning wheel, only her sister Annie can rescue her from the evil curse.
Annie is impervious to ALL magic - good and bad - so she is the only person in the palace left awake when her sister pricks that finger.
Now Annie must undertake a quest to try and find her sister's one true love to break the spell.
She sets off through the kingdom, joined by a handsome prince who is in disguise, and along the way they encounter many fabulously familiar fairy tale characters, including Hansel & Gretel, who Annie rescues from the witch.
Full of E D Baker's trademark humour, plot twists, and with a feisty, clever and witty female lead, this will charm fans of The Frog Princess, and bring in many new ones.
