Sleeping Beauty (Way)
Here comes a bolder, funnier version of your favorite tales. Meet one of the more independent, headstrong, in-your-face princesses, Briar Rose (a.k.a. Sleeping Beauty). And Gryff, who’s half-dragon and total smart aleck. There’s Branwen, the really nice witch who tries to outspell the evil Modron. And, of course, the Prince. Owain, who comes with the standardly princely features, minus bravery, talent and competence. In between the story you know is a deliciously funny and amazing adventures, replete with troublesome fairy folk and a riddle-challenging Spider King.

“Charles Way doesn’t deconstruct the well-known fairy tale…he gives it a few gentle twists and plumbs it for more depth.” –St. Paul Pioneer Press
