A wicked fairy has cast a spell over Princess Rose, sending her into a deep sleep. Sound familiar? Based on the timeless fairy tale Sleeping Beauty, this funny and appealing storybook brings a new voice to the classic, introducing a new twist to a new generation of young readers. With the help of some fairy godmothers and a dashing, garden-designing prince, the fairy tale hairdresser, who goes by the name of Kitty Lacey, has to do more than trim some ends - she must save the day altogether! Imaginative, fantastically entertaining and packed with wonderful illustrations which have funny fairy tale references for children to discover, this is a magical, easy-to-follow and modern Sleeping Beauty adaptation.

Kittie’s haircuts are the talk of the town and she is very popular with all your favourite fairytale characters… This modern retelling of Sleeping Beauty is a fabulous idea! Amusing, entertaining and beautifully written, Libby can't wait to read the other books in this collection. The textured, glittered pages and the detail in the illustrations are just brilliant. Taking a classic fairy tale and creating an upbeat, humorous story with a modern twist makes this book perfect – Libby loved it!

What a fabulous idea, a modern retelling of the Fairytale sleeping beauty.  Kitties haircuts are the talk of the town and she is very popular with all your favourite Fairytale characters from red riding hood, Alice in wonderland and all the fairies from sleeping beauty.  So sleeping beauty is helped by seven god fairies, a rather hip, hairtastic, hairdresser and a gardener designer who happens to be a prince.  This book is a completely hit with both my daughters and their mum.  It's amusing, entertaining, enchanting beautifully written and illustrated and I can't wait to read the other books in the collection including Cinderella and Repunzel.  Libby loved the textured, glittered pages and the amount of detail in the illustrations had her pointing out lots of different things and characters on each page.  This book is perfect, they have taken a classic Fairytale and created an upbeat, humorous tale with a modern twist. The text and illustrations are gorgeous and i just love, love,love it!!!  I will be getting all of the books in this range, if you haven't read this book you must!
