9780062435132: The Sleeper and the Spindle CD

It was the closest kingdom to the queen's, as the crow flies, but not even the crows flew it. You may think you know this story. There's a young queen, about to be married. There are some good, brave, hardy dwarfs; a castle, shrouded in thorns; and a princess, cursed by a witch, so rumor has it, to sleep forever.

But no one is waiting for a noble prince to appear on his trusty steed here. This fairy tale is spun with a thread of dark magic, which twists and turns and glints and shines. A queen might just prove herself a hero, if a princess needs rescuing. . . .

Review:

“Gaiman and Riddell’s greatest [collaboration] to date.” (Tor.com)

“Told in a way only Gaiman can” and featuring “stunning metallic artwork.” (GeekInsider)

“A refreshing, much-needed twist on a classic story.” (The Guardian)

“Spellbindingly illustrated.” (Gaby Wood, Saturday Telegraph)

“Magical, sumptuous, transporting.” (The Big Issue)

“Unforgettable, unpredictable and utterly enchanting for anyone between the ages of seven and seventy.” (Amanda Craig, The New Statesman)

“A genuine treat.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“A spectacular art object...certainly a treasure.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

“Riddell’s spectacularly intricate ink drawings, gilded with gold, bring Gaiman’s inventive story to life...This highly recommended visually stunning twist on two classic fairy tales will be well received by fans of graphic novels and fantasy stories.” (School Library Journal (starred review))

“A wholly original reimagining...Riddell’s artwork is the reason a library should own this title in their collection. His details are exquisite.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA))

“A striking volume...thrums with malevolence and confounds our expectations...[the pictures] seem to writhe creepily on the page.” (Wall Street Journal)

“Unabashedly feminist...So sonically tuned that it breathes on its own from the very first line. Adding to the wonder are Chris Riddell’s dazzling illustrations.” (New York Times Book Review)
