Another fairy tale post for work…Sleeping Beauty was tricky. Next I think I’ll look at Beauty & the Beast 🙂

Of all the fairy tales, does it seem like “Sleeping Beauty” is often the one just out of the spotlight? The story is still one of the better known tales thanks to Disney’s continued pilfering of folklore and fairy tales and that means there are still many “Sleeping Beauty” adaptations. The tale’s leading lady goes by many names — Talia, Aurora, Brier-Rose — depending on the version; however, not quite as many as Cinderella! One thing “Sleeping Beauty” adaptations have going for them: variety. They span many genres and are available for a wide range of age groups!

Are you looking for a children’s tale? Try Snoring Beauty by Bruce Hale — A funny adaptation of the traditional tale, featuring a sleeping, snoring princess named Marge who is rescued by a prince after being cursed by the bad fairy, Beebo.

Are you looking for a more traditional retelling? Try Spindle’s End
