Two hilarious fairy tales with a difference - just spin the book round to read a different story! Here, 'Sleeping Beauty' and 'Cinderella' (with a gender twist) get a modern spin . . .
In 'Princess Sonora And The Long Sleep', Princess Sonora is a terrible know-it-all, blessed at birth with supernatural intelligence. She is scheduled to marry a very dull Prince, but legend takes it course and she sleeps for a hundred years - only to be rescued by the curious Prince Christopher who's desperate to learn why his country's sheep are all going bald . . .
And in 'Cinderellis And The Glass Hill', Princess Marigold's father can't stop questing. His latest quest is to find Marigold a Prince brave enough to ride his horse up a glass hill and fetch three golden apples. Cinderellis lives with his farming brothers, who have no interest in his amazing inventions. So he tests his sticking powder on his horse's feet and rides up the glass hill . . .
