THE SLEEPER AND THE SPINDLE: DELUXE EDITION

By Neil Gaiman

About THE SLEEPER AND THE SPINDLE: DELUXE EDITION

*SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2016 KATE GREENAWAY MEDAL* Neil Gaiman and Chris Riddell are both at the height of their powers as they weave together a sort-of Snow White and an almost Sleeping Beauty with a thread of dark magic. Utterly enchanting, this glorious new edition is a volume to treasure – a larger format, packaged in a bespoke slipcase containing a beautiful print of a stunning illustration from the book.
 
On the eve of her wedding, a young queen sets out to rescue a princess from an enchantment. She casts aside her fine wedding clothes, takes her chain mail and her sword and follows her brave dwarf retainers into the tunnels under the mountain towards the sleeping kingdom. This queen will decide her own future – and the princess who needs rescuing is not quite what she seems. Twisting together the familiar and the new, this perfectly delicious, captivating and darkly funny tale shows its creators at the peak of their talents.
 
Lavishly produced, packed with glorious Chris Riddell illustrations enhanced with metallic ink, this is a spectacular and magical gift.
