Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
5.5 / 7.0

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.
