Interest Age 8-12 Reading Age 8+ Poor Sleeping Beauty! Everyone knows she was cursed by the wicked fairy out of spite because she wasn’t invited to the christening and so fell asleep for 100 years. But it all turns out to have been a terrible mistake! Here, in a witty and very different account, the 13th Fairy tells how that was never meant to happen! Kaye Umansky’s makes excellent fun with a traditional tale.

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 8+

Synopsis

The 13th Fairy by Kaye Umansky

Grimbleshanks just wanted to be invited to the Royal Christening. All the other fairies had been invited. But not her - just because she didn't like pink or frills or dancing on her tip-toes. Well, she would show them ...with a curse! Sleeping Beauty as you've never read it before.

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 8+
