en Hardback – 22 Sep 2015 – vârsta de la 13 ani

În această captivantă și vag sumbră poveste cu accente umoristice, Neil Gaiman și Chris Riddell au amestecat împreună familiarul și noul cu frumosul și cu năstrușnicul pentru a prezenta o briliantă versiune a Albei ca Zăpada (într-un fel) și Frumoasa din Pădure Adormită (aproape).

Seria Povestiri Neil Gaiman


New York Times bestselling and Newbery and Carnegie Medal-winning author Neil Gaiman and Kate Greenaway-winning illustrator Chris Riddell have created a thrillingly reimagined fairy tale, "told in a way only Gaiman can" and featuring "stunning metallic artwork" (
The result is a beautiful and coveted edition of The Sleeper and the Spindle that the Guardian calls "a refreshing, much-needed twist on a classic story."
In this captivating and darkly funny tale, Neil Gaiman and Chris Riddell have twisted together the familiar and the new as well as the beautiful and the wicked to tell a brilliant version of Snow White's (sort of) and Sleeping Beauty's (almost) stories.
This story was originally published (without illustrations) in Rags & Bones (Little, Brown, 2013). This is the first time it is being published as an illustrated, stand-alone edition, and the book is a beautiful work of art.

Textul de pe ultima copertă

It was the closest kingdom to the queen's, as the crow flies, but not even the crows flew it.
You may think you know this story. There's a young queen, about to be married. There are some good, brave, hardy dwarfs; a castle, shrouded in thorns; and a princess, cursed by a witch, so rumor has it, to sleep forever.
But no one is waiting for a noble prince to appear on his trusty steed here. This fairy tale is spun with a thread of dark magic, which twists and turns and glints and shines. A queen might just prove herself a hero, if a princess needs rescuing. . . .


“Unabashedly feminist...So sonically tuned that it breathes on its own from the very first line. Adding to the wonder are Chris Riddell’s dazzling illustrations.”
“Told in a way only Gaiman can” and featuring “stunning metallic artwork.”
“A refreshing, much-needed twist on a classic story.”
“Spellbindingly illustrated.”
“Magical, sumptuous, transporting.”
“Unforgettable, unpredictable and utterly enchanting for anyone between the ages of seven and seventy.”
“A genuine treat.”
“A spectacular art object...certainly a treasure.”
“Riddell’s spectacularly intricate ink drawings, gilded with gold, bring Gaiman’s inventive story to life...This highly recommended visually stunning twist on two classic fairy tales will be well received by fans of graphic novels and fantasy stories.”
“A wholly original reimagining...Riddell’s artwork is the reason a library should own this title in their collection. His details are exquisite.”
“A striking volume...thrums with malevolence and confounds our expectations...[the pictures] seem to writhe creepily on the page.”
