I love these books! My 8 year old granddaughter gets lost in the stories and the illustrations. She'll find a quiet space and read through each book until done. The illustrations depict the stories in wondrous detail. These are NOT Disney renditions, but what Disney wishes it could convey. I plan to buy all the Craft illustrated (written) books.

After being captivated by K.Y. Craft's gorgeous illustrations for "Cinderella," I quickly picked up this book. I'm delighted that Craft has worked a similar enchantment with the timeless fairy tale of "Sleeping Beauty."
The basic story of "Sleeping Beauty" can be told in a few paragraphs. Walt Disney expanded the story considerably for his 75 minute animated movie version. This version, retold here by Mahlon F. Craft, is simple but frequently eloquent. The story begins with a frog who tells the bathing Queen she will soon give birth to a baby daughter. This version retains the complete number of thirteen fairies (Disney sensibly reduced the number of Good Fairies down to three for animation purposes). The King and Queen soon regret their decision not to invite the evil thirtenth fairy to the christening party.
Although she only makes two brief appearances in this version, the Evil Fairy, as drawn by K.Y. Craft, is truly frightening.
By contrast, the sixteen year old Princess Aurora is shown as a breathtaking vision of exquisite and rare beauty. Prince Charming is shown as her perfect male counterpart. Many Princes attempt to rescue Aurora from her curse of a century's sleep. But they all perish in the field of thorns that has grown around the castle. But this particular Prince is the only one who could have ended the curse, by virtue of his adventurous spirit, and brave and loving heart. He kisses Aurora and she awakens. Fittingly, as she awakens and sees this Prince, Aurora remarks that she has been dreaming only of him for one hundred years.
K.Y. Craft's extremely detailed paintings (yes, that's what they are, paintings) are certain to leave you spellbound and in awe of her amazing talents. I would love to see what magic she could do with such stories as "Snow White" or even "The Wizard Of Oz."

Absolutely beautiful! My husband and I read to our daughters every night and this book was a perfect addition to our rotation. I also purchased three other books by this author/illustrator that are well loved. Highly recommend!

This was purchased as a gift for a little girl who can't get enough fairy tales and princesses. The story is timeless and the artwork is flawless. It's an absolutely beautiful book to look at and share with young readers. It's sure to be a keepsake.

I have long been a fan of the Crafts and Sleeping Beauty if one of my favorites. The illustrations are so lavish and beautiful, and the prose is excellent too. I already had my own copy but purchased this one as a gift for my newborn niece's library. Her mother is looking forward to many readings in the years to come of such a special, heirloom-quality book. Just beautiful.

The text is what one would expect and the illustrations are gorgeous!

Stunning artwork. Great work from Mahlon Craft. Picture of queen bathing tastefully done, but might inspire questions with kids (as it did with mine).
This rendition of Sleeping Beauty is delicious to the eye. I purchased the book specifically for the art work. KY Craft is fast becoming one of my favorite artists and the children's books she has illustrated are pieces of art that I return to look at again and again.

The story line is well loved.... and it is a pleasure reading a delightfully familiar & wonderfully illustrated fairytale as a 'maturing' grown up! CJ
