HARPERCOLL

A spiteful fairy. A beautiful princess. An outstretched finger. A spindle. A hundred-year snooze. A charming prince. A kiss. Allthe familiar ingredients.

But wait! Where did that extra prince come from? And those fairy gifts that were never there before? And what does a flock ofbalding sheep have to do with anything?

Gail Carson Levine has waved her magic wand over the old standby of "Sleeping Beauty" and presto! It reappears, transformed,sparkling and hilarious. Chuckles and giggles are guaranteed.
