Curse of the Thirteenth Fey:The True Tale of Sleeping Beauty

Jane Yolen

Gorse is the thirteenth child in the Shouting Fey, a clan of mischievous fairies who are required to do as the king wishes. The latest "Royal Bidding" is to bring gifts to the newborn princess at her christening. Gorse hurries to the event, carrying a spindle as a gift. She falls down a hole, trapped underground with a prince and his loyal companion. They expect her to rid them of their curse, and she does, in a most unexpected way. This retelling of Sleeping Beauty is filled with humor, memorable characters and clever plot twists. Another treasure from the award-winning author of Snow in Summer (2011) Ages 9-11
