The Lovereading4Kids comment

This prettily illustrated retelling of the classic fairy-tale lets young readers tiptoe through the enchanted palace itself via a series of dainty overlaid cut-out windows and delicate flaps. It’s hugely appealing, part stage-set, part dolls’ house, and the filigree cut-outs of the roses and thorns are particularly charming. The story is told concisely, but the magic is all there and this will delight young fairy-tale fans. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Peep Inside a Fairy Tale Sleeping Beauty by Anna Milbourne

Cursed at birth, Sleeping Beauty is destined to fall asleep for a hundred years on her sixteenth birthday. Can the good fairies, and true love’s first kiss, save her? Delicate cutaways and holes to peep through are layered on top of each other to create a magical filigree effect, drawing children in to the romantic fairy tale.

• The classic fairy tale, brought right up to date for a modern audience with beautiful illustrations and fine laser-cut holes and cutaways which add depth and drama.

• Young children will love looking at the detail in this book - both in the illustrations and in the peep-throughs and flaps - and sharing and talking about it with a grown-up.

• Other titles in the Peep Inside a Fairy Tale series:

Cinderella

Little Red Riding Hood

Beauty and the Beast
