From Library Staff

Duration: 1 hour. Bring it along for when you need a short story to get you home. The story may sound familiar: a queen about to be married; seven brave dwarfs; a princess cursed by a witch. But Gaiman mashes it up in an unforgettable dark fairy tale.

I checked out the audio book and hard copy of the book at the same time, intending to follow along in the book as it was read to my daughter and me. I didn't like that the audio book skipped the parts of the story around the dialogue, which is where descriptions of characters were nestled and bits of story even. It even skips an entire paragraph in which a major plot twist dawns on the queen. NOT a well-done reading. (The story is still good, even if this reading is not--that is why it has more than one star.)

This was a quirky look at a favourite fable. I think it breathes actual life into the characters

An enchanting and topsy-turvy take on the Sleeping Beauty fable, the dwarves, and even Snow White, cleverly told, surprising, and very short, just one disc!
