About this title


A beautifully illustrated retelling of the enchanting story of the classic ballet by Tchaikovsky follows the beautiful bewitched princess who sleeps for one hundred years and the handsome prince whose kiss awakens her.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4-A picture-book retelling of the plot from the Petipa/Tchaikovsky ballet. The retelling here is every bit as good as those found in Jane Rosenberg's Dance Me a Story (Thames & Hudson, 1985) and in Violette Verdy's Of Swans, Sugarplums and Satin Slippers (Scholastic, 1991), both of which contain plots for several ballets. The narrative flows along smoothly, supplying all of the important plot lines in an entertaining manner, thus giving young fans a good understanding of the ballet when they see it. The illustrations are less effective; the full-page oil paintings are done in an impressionistic style and appear hazy due to the simulated stage lighting. Also, the print is too small for the layout. Nevertheless, the book is an adequate purchase for libraries in which ballet is popular.
