A thrillingly reimagined fairytale from the truly magical combination of author Neil Gaiman and illustrator Chris Riddell, now available as a gorgeous paperback enhanced with gloriously vibrant red ink highlights. Weaving together hints of Snow White and Sleeping Beauty with a shimmering thread of dark magic, it will hold readers spellbound from start to finish.

On the eve of her wedding, a young queen sets out to rescue a princess from an enchantment. She casts aside her fine wedding clothes, takes her chain mail and her sword and ventures into the tunnels under the mountain towards the sleeping kingdom. This queen will decide her own future - and the princess who needs rescuing is not quite what she seems. Twisting together the familiar and the new, this delicious, captivating and darkly funny tale shows its creators at the peak of their talents and was the winner of the 2016 CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal.
Lavishly produced and packed with glorious Chris Riddell illustrations, this amazingly beautiful book makes a spectacular and magical gift.
