Editorial Reviews

Review

Filled with puns and lively wordplay, the rhyming plays off traditional plot elements, and readers familiar with the original will enjoy making comparisons. -- School Library Journal

Will have readers in stitches. This irrepressible read-aloud will have the audience shouting directions at the poor hapless Prince. -- Kirkus Reviews

It is well written, and colorful, and creatively illustrated!

The rhymes are great, there's a catchy rhythm to it, and the kids I have read it to find it hilarious!

I laughed out loud when I read this, and my almost-five year old daughter loves it.

Leah Wilcox' rhyming, offbeat send up of the Sleeping Beauty story is hilarious. My children and I all love it - even my boy, who has endured so many princess stories for his sister's sake that he hates them on principle, thinks this book is a riot. But the humor is sweet, not cynical, and leaves them both rolling. They also love Lydia Monks' illustrations, and study them intently searching for the "real" textures and the "drawn" ones. I love everything about this book! Also look at their other collaboration, Falling for Rapunzel.

My little princess keeps all of her princess books in one pile in her room so we can read them over and over and over ... Needless to say, I quickly tired of the traditional tales. This book, however, is delightful! My daughter and I laughed and laughed ...

I love this book! My daughter still laughs at the princes failed attempts to wake up this sleepy princess. And I have to admit, I laugh a little too. It's a witty take on a old classic. I recommend it to everyone.

The beautiful girl has been asleep for years and the fairies are desperate to find a prince to help the damsel in distress. An unsuspecting dragon seeking prince will do perfectly... too bad he doesn't like girls! The boy's attempts to wake the sleeping girl without a kiss are delightful. Boys and girls will adore this tale. This silly book is a perfect read aloud.

My daughter loved Falling for Rapunzel. I was constantly requesting it from the library. So I decided to get it for her for Christmas. I needed an equal gift for my other daughter. This book is enjoyed almost as much as the Rapunzel one. Classic stories told in an amusing way.

As a children's librarian, I've used this book to great effect at storytimes. As an uncle, my niece and nephew thoroughly enjoyed this book. The kids I've read this to have all laughed and engaged in the book. That to me deserves 5 stars.
