Helpful Hints


In this stand-alone fairy tale, Princess Annie is the younger sister to Gwen, the princess destined to be Sleeping Beauty. When Gwennie pricks her finger and the whole castle falls asleep, only Annie is awake, and only Annie-blessed (or cursed?) with being impervious to magic-can venture out beyond the rose-covered hedge for help. She must find Gwen's true love to kiss her awake.

But who is her true love? The irritating Digby? The happy-go-lucky Prince Andreas, who is holding a contest to find his bride? The conniving Clarence, whose sinister motives couldn't possibly spell true love? Joined by one of her father's guards, Liam, who happened to be out of the castle when the sleeping spell struck, Annie travels through a fairy tale land populated with characters both familiar and new as she tries to fix her sister and her family . . . and perhaps even find a true love of her own.

The Tale That Kept Me Wide-Awake
February 9th, 2015
I love E.D. Baker's books. I read them as a child and keep rereading them now, they're that great! If you love fairy tales and little girl dreams, you're going to love this book.

Romantic Comedic Adventure
February 28th, 2014
The story journeys through a variety of fairytales from Hansel and Gretel to Beauty Beast. The main storyline is centered around Sleeping Beauty. It is comical. There is a romance that develops between Annie and Liam that i think should have been developed more. The story is written almost like a movie script - with detailed attention to the scenery and the action scenes. I think the story was too long because of this. This should have been a shoter romance rather than a long drawn out comedic adventure.
