Booklist Reviews

As in Mary Osborne's Sleeping Bobby (2005), this raucous offering twists "Sleeping Beauty" into something gleefully new. A green frog, in feathered hat and cape, narrates the tale in casual language that is filled with kid-appealing, gross-out silliness, which begins with the names of the royal family:  King Gluteus, Queen Esophagus, and their beautiful baby girl, Princess Margarine. The slapstick continues when a hard-of-hearing fairy issues a series of prophesies: the princess will be transformed into a sleeping dragon, and only a quince (not a prince) can awaken her. Enlivened with puns and sound effects, the text will read easily to a crowd. More laughs will come from the full-page pencil-and-watercolor pictures, which show a motley crew of fairies (the tooth fairy is particularly distinctive in pink wings, tattoos, and a five-o'clock shadow) and then the princess as a scaly, pink dragon, whose castle-rattling snores are spelled out in bright purple capital letters. Lively fun that closes with a fractured but still happily fairy-tale ending. Copyright 2008 Booklist Reviews.
