Synopsis

Snoring Beauty by Rachael Mortimer

One day the King and Queen are woken up in the middle of the night by the most terrifying noise. They search the palace from top to bottom before they discover the source of the deafening din ...their daughter! The Princess simply will not be woken and before long everything has decended into chaos with the inhabitants of the palace being driven swiftly mad by the dreadful noise. The only solution, as with all good fairytales, is a prince of some sort! Before long princes from every corner of the world are queuing up to kiss the princess - on the promise of her hand in marriage and a bag of gold if they can stop the snoring. Who will manage to save the kingdom from the super snores? Will it be Chief Brown Bear, Prince Powderpuff of Paris or Charming Prince Charlie? What if none of their kisses do the trick? Find out in this brilliant picture book from a brand new author-illustrator team.

About the Author

Rachael had a wonderfully happy childhood in the country and now lives in London with her husband and two young daughters. She had many successful years in advertising, working on brands as diverse as Boots, Greenpeace, The Science Museum, Coca Cola, Fruit - tella and Vaseline Intensive Care. However, she eventually found juggling career and children unrewarding and decided to stay at home and focus on her two loves: family and writing. She started by creating stories for her own little girls and had her first picturebook, Sammy's Surprise Deliveries, published by Macmillan in January 2007. Amanda's dad clocked early on that the one thing to get him some peace and quiet was to ask her to go draw a princess. A full-time illustrator based in Oxford, she scans her expressive nib pen drawings and then adds colour and texture digitally, a method she developed when studying children's book illustration at Brighton University. Originally from Sweden, Amanda's artwork has appeared in magazines, advertising and drama productions in the UK and abroad.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
