Truly enchanting to read Nov 15, 2008
Chronicle books has done it again with a quality children's piece that is one of the most beautifully illustrated books on the market. Dreamy and a nice large format to boot.
A masterpiece Jun 27, 2008
The story is timeless, and the product is just as good. Beautiful artwork to accompany the story. The paper is top-rate, and the cover is A+. Every little girl should have this book and eventually pass it down to the next generation.
Luminous! Aug 24, 2007
This rendition of Sleeping Beauty is delicious to the eye. I purchased the book specifically for the art work. KY Craft is fast becoming one of my favorite artists and the children's books she has illustrated are pieces of art that I return to look at again and again.
The story line is well loved.... and it is a pleasure reading a delightfully familiar & wonderfully illustrated fairytale as a 'maturing' grown up! CJ
Very Interesting to Say the Least Apr 7, 2007
This book is beautiful. I'm so happy that my daughter is the one that told me about it. The artwork is worth the price in everyway. Of course, Sleeping Beauty is a story that no one ever gets tired of. By all means add this one to your library.
Fantastic! Mar 13, 2007
This is a simply gorgeous book. Kinuko Y. Craft is such a magnificent illustrator. All of her images are detailed, delicate, and deep.
