Bruce Hale's Snoring Beauty has been nominated for the 2011 Colorado Children's Book Award. It's a cute book with a different take on a favorite fairy tale.
Everyone knows the story of Sleeping Beauty: A handsome prince rescues a beautiful princess from a wicked fairy's terrible sleeping spell.
This story is just like the original. Except for the sarcastic frog narrator, the garlic-scented fairy, and—oh yeah—the princess in this book not only sleeps and snores . . . she's also been turned into a hot-pink and purple dragon!
Recommended for Kindergarten to 3rd Grade.
Mrs. Archer's rating: 4 of 5
