A Children's Book
by Brett Crandall
AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE
The classic Grimm's tale "The Sleeping Beauty" is flipped when we learn what Princess Rose has been dreaming up for the last hundred years. Discovering she has the power to enter the dreams of others, our heroine journeys to find the right prince to wake her from her cursed sleep. But she'll soon discover not all princes are charming. Will she find her lost dream prince or will The Dark Fairy find her first?
"This book is a familiar story written with humor, expressive dialogue, and a little magic, about finding compassion, kindness, and acceptance of others. Brett created witty, charming characters and lets them tell their own stories through their words and actions. The illustrations throughout the book are expressive and delightful, and add a lot of fun to the story. It is enjoyable to read and readers of any age, especially those who like fairy tales, will find something to appreciate and think about in this story."
