The Book Snob Mom
Mom, Avid Reader, Austen Fangirl

The illustrations in this book are absolutely stunning—I am a huge fan of Valeria Docampo’s work and this book is no exception! The fact that it’s based on the New York City Ballet’s production of Sleeping Beauty (with dancing illustrations) is a fun and unique twist for the telling of a fairy tale that many only know from the Disney version.
