Sleeping Beauty: The One Who Took the Really Long Nap
|Series:||Twice Upon a Time|
The girl's been asleep for a hundred years. The boy's got issues of his own. There are two sides to every story....
It's not easy being Princess Rose. Especially when a fairy curses you and you find yourself avoiding all sharp objects . . . and then end up pricking your finger anyway, causing you to slumber for a hundred years or so.
And it's not easy being The Prince. Especially when your mother has some ogre blood and tends to chow down at the most unfortunate moments. A walk in the woods would help, you think. Until you find a certain hidden castle . . . and a certain sleeping princess. Happily ever after? Not until the prince helps the princess awaken . . . and brings her home to Mother.
Journey back to the days when fairy tales were true with this fun and fresh spin on a timeless tale!
