About this title


Pamela Silin-Palmer and her daughter Emily Snowell Keller bring their talents to this retelling of Sleeping Beauty, showcasing Ms. Silin-Palmer’s fabulous paintings of animals dressed in costumes. As always, the illustrations are filled with detail, rendered both impeccably and with lots of quirky humor. Where else can you find piggies with butterfly wings as fairy godmothers? The text maintains the humor all the way to “hoppily ever after.”

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3-This lavishly illustrated version of "Sleeping Beauty" features a straightforward retelling spiced with a few amusing surprises, a cast of animal characters dressed in full medieval regalia, and sumptuous paintings that strike just the right balance between romance and humor. The King, his Queen, the Princess, and her hero are depicted as long-limbed, statuesque rabbits, all elegantly draped in silks and velvets and bedecked in shimmering jewels. Dressed in costumes that evoke the various flowers for which they are named, the good fairies are tiny pigs that hover on butterfly wings and sometimes take butterfly form. Mildew, "the eighth and crankiest fairy," who is not invited to Princess Bunny's birth celebration for lack of enough place settings, makes an appropriately jarring appearance as a neon-green rat with razor teeth and bat wings. The dramatic spreads are filled with lush visual details, vibrant colors, and fluid lines. The tone remains lighthearted, as tongue-in-cheek touches in the artwork and in the storytelling reassure readers that all will be well. In fact, a "hoppily ever after" future is guaranteed when Mildew appears at Princess Bunny's wedding with a gift of "eight golden plates." While those familiar with the tale will enjoy the whimsy of Sleeping Bunny, this story also makes a great choice for younger readers who may not be ready for more traditional versions, such as those illustrated by Trina Schart Hyman (Little, Brown, 1977) and K. Y. Craft (SeaStar, 2002).
