Verity Fairy: Sleeping Beauty Review

Fantasy / Magical Featured Books for 5+ readers Traditional Tales

A lively new version of a favourite fairy tale, just right for newly independent readers

November 2021 Book of the Month

Fairies Verity and her best friend Celeste live in Fairy Tale Kingdom, where all your favourite fairytale adventures take place. In this story, Tatiana, the Queen of the Fairies, puts Verity in charge of the party the human king and queen are throwing for their new baby daughter. When Verity accidentally on purpose leaves out Nissa, the grumpy fairy places that curse on the baby. Fortunately, with Celeste’s help, Verity can put things right, not just for the royal family, but with Nissa too.

As with other titles in this series, this puts a sweet new twist on a much-loved story and little children will be very taken by Verity and Celeste. With lots of illustrations and short chapters, it’s good for newly independent readers and a useful glossary will help them understand and remember new vocabulary.

I felt it was important to show children that it’s ok to make mistakes.” - Caroline Wakeman on The Verity Fairy series

In these captivating interpretations of classic fairy tales filled with humor and wit, children can rediscover the much-loved story of Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Cinderella and Rapuzel while exploring the kingdom of the fairies—a place where all of the classic fairy tales coexist and intertwine.
