Book Review:
The Sleeper and The Spindle by Neil Gaiman

Title: The Sleeper and The Spindle
Author: Neil Gaiman, Chris Riddell (Illustrator)
Published: 2014
Language: English
Pages: 68
Rating: 4/5

The evening before her wedding, a young queen sets out to save a princess from a curse.

This is a sort of fairytale retelling, combining Snow White and Sleeping Beauty, and I thought it worked really well how the author created something new.

What I loved most about this was the artwork and how it works together with the story. The whole story is sort of whimsical, and I like how the artwork ties everything together.

This is a sweet, creepy little book. I wish it was longer!

I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys fairytales.
