Everyone knows Sleeping Beauty has to be woken with a kiss, except Prince Charming. Every time the fairies watching over her try to tell him, he interrupts with his ideas of how to wake her. Eventually he gets the message, and his reaction is priceless: “One hundred years of morning breath Wow! That could be the kiss of death!”

With just as much interactive fun as Falling for Rapunzel (an IRA Notable Book and the winner of Maryland’s Black-Eyed Susan Picture Book Award), this fractured fairy tale will elicit laughter that no one will be able to sleep through.

"This irrepressible read-aloud will have the audience shouting directions at the poor hapless Prince." -Kirkus
