The Spell of Sleeping Beauty
In the kingdom of Never Nod there’s celebration! Princess Briar-Rose has been born to the King and Queen! Unfortunately, that nasty fairy, Evilina and her friends, who live in Tumbledown Castle, is not invited. They show up anyway and pronounce their revenge. At age 16, the princess will cut her finger on a spinning wheel and fall into a deep sleep from which she’ll never awake. Some good fairies counter the curse by saying the princess can be awakened by the kiss of true love. The King bans all spinning wheels. Evilina and her cohorts are not so easily defeated and, on that fateful birthday, the princess does, indeed, cut her finger on a spinning wheel. It’s up to Prince Alexander to come to Briar-Rose’s rescue — and the court’s too. They’re all asleep! The prince must fight a Wall of Thorns, a False Princess and, most frightening of all — the awesome Dark Knight! This captivating, frolicsome version of the always-popular classic has it all — charm, action, romance, comedy, thrills, plus zany and lovable characters. Suitable for all age groups.
