Customers who viewed this item also viewed
In an earlier book called Cinder-Elly writer Frances Minters and illustrator G. Brian Kara retold the Cinderella story in compelling fashion. The pair works its magic a second time, this time setting the story of Sleeping Beauty in present-day New York City. In doing so they have created one of the most memorable characters to grace the pages of a children's book for a long time. The character in question is not the young narrator (who, in this telling, wakes up rather than falling into a century-long nap) but the wicked witch, a fabulous creation of malevolence and ill-will who carries rats in her pockets and sports a gruesome nose that only Richard Nixon's mother could love. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From Publishers Weekly
The heroine of this fractured fairy tale lives in a high-rise apartment building, listens to a Walkman and is wooed by a guitar-toting prince. Karas's stylish artwork contributes a quirky twist to the tale. Ages 3-8.
