Snoring Beauty is a sweetly hilarious spin on the classic fairy tale "Sleeping Beauty." Written in bouncy rhymed verse perfect for reading aloud, this whimsical reimagining from Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen is sure to appeal to children and parents alike.

Tucked in his little bed inside the castle walls, Mouse is eager to get a good night's sleep before his wedding tomorrow. But just as he begins to drift off, he's awoken by a tremendous roar. SNOOOOGA-SNOOOOOM! KER-SCHUPPP! Sleeping Beauty is snoring . . . again! When the handsome Prince Max arrives, Mouse thinks he's found the perfect scheme: He'll convince the prince to kiss Beauty and wake her up! But when Prince Max learns that Beauty is the one making such monstrous noises, will he still want to kiss her . . . or will he run away from the noisy princess, leaving her snoring for another hundred years?

Back cover copy

It's the night before Mouse's wedding, and all through the house, not a creature is sleeping--especially not Mouse. Just as he tucks himself in for a night of sweet dreams, he's jolted awake by a castle-shaking roar.

Snooooga-snooooom!

Is it a monster? A bear? No, it's Sleeping Beauty herself . . . snoring. Desperate for shut-eye, Mouse hatches a plan: He'll find a prince to kiss Beauty and wake her up! But things don't exactly go as planned when Prince Max discovers that his bride-to-be is making such ghastly noises. Will Max take one for the royal team and give Beauty a kiss to wake her up, or will he leave this noisy princess asleep for another hundred years?

From author Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen and illustrator Jane Manning, Snoring Beauty is a sweetly hilarious spin on the classic story, perfect for fairy-tale fans of all ages.
