Once upon a time . . . nothing was as it seemed!

What if Sleeping Beauty were actually a frog princess, doomed to be Weeping Beauty forever? What if the Three Chickens had to outwit Goldifox? What if Cinder-Elephant lost her glass plate slipper?

About the Author:

Gregory Maguire is the New York Times bestselling author of Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister; Lost; Mirror Mirror; and the Wicked Years, a series that includes Wicked, Son of a Witch, A Lion Among Men, and Out of Oz. Now a beloved classic, Wicked is the basis for a blockbuster Tony Award–winning Broadway musical. Maguire has lectured on art, literature, and culture both at home and abroad. He lives with his family near Boston, Massachusetts.



Chris L. Demarest, illustrator of many children's books, including Firefighters A to Z, I Invited a Dragon to Dinner, Mayday! Mayday!, T. Rex at Swan Lake, and the Supertwins series, lives in Claremont, New Hampshire.

From AudioFile:

In his first narration of his own work, Gregory Maguire whips up an array of clever voices for the cast of creatures in LEAPING BEAUTY. Written for the 8-12 set, this collection of fractured fairy tales puts seven giraffes in the place of the seven dwarves, a horrid skunk in the role of the evil stepmother, and three irresponsible penguins where three pigs once played. Maguire thoroughly enjoys himself on this collection as he plays for laughs. His timing and character voices are pitch-perfect for the text. Some listeners may tire of the constant ringing irony of the text, but will enjoy pieces like "Little Red Robin Hood," in which Maguire's wit is not so sardonic. K.C.
