Once upon a time a baby princess was born. The kingdom's fairies blessed her with happiness, luck, cleverness, kindness and beauty . . . but one wicked fairy was angry at having been left out of the celebration and placed a wicked curse on the little princess. On her sixteenth birthday, the princess would prick her finger and fall into a deep sleep for a hundred years . . . until a handsome prince would wake her with true love's kiss.

A magical, updated retelling of the classic fairy tale by award-winning author Ursula Jones, brought to life with glorious illustrations by Paola Escobar. A must-have for any child's library.
