Sleeping Beauty

Sleeping Beauty by Sarah Gibb

Another story retold and illustrated by Gibb.  In the pastels/silhouette form that she does.  I don't think it worked quite as well here as in Beauty and the Beast -- though perhaps I was not quite as happy with the retelling, and also I dislike little winged fairies. But still a quite respectable telling for a youngster.
