Shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal 2016.
A glory of a fairy tale woven in threads of dark and gold magic. A sort-of Snow White and an almost Sleeping Beauty! It’s been a few years since Neil Gaiman and Chris Riddell made jaws drop by winning both the Carnegie Medal and the Newbery Medal for The Graveyard Book. Since then Chris Riddell, for one, has been pretty busy serving as the Children’s Laureate. But now the duo are back, casting a hypnotic fairytale spell. On the eve of her wedding, a young queen sets out to rescue an enchanted princess. She takes off her fine wedding clothes, puts on her chain mail and sword, and follows her brave dwarf retainers into the mountain. In the sleeping kingdom under the mountain, the queen will decide her own future. Yet the princess who needs rescuing, too, is not quite what she seems….
