The Book

"Step into Sleeping Beauty" is an amazing re-invented board book that introduces another generation to this timeless fairytale. The book draws children into the narrative and the beautiful magical illustrations enrich the tale.  They are created with die-cuts, layered pages, and vibrant colours.  This stunning format encourages tactile interaction.  The story enfolds as each page is turned to the delight of a child ( and adult ). 

This Layer-by-Layer series allows children to step into even more classic stories with:  The Nutcracker, Alice in Wonderland, and The Jungle Book.  I highly recommend this book... and the entire series.
