When Prince Charming finds Sleeping Beauty and her fairies, he doesn't know what to do. The fairies try to tell him, but he keeps interrupting with crazy ideas of his own such as shouting, jumping on her bed, and pouring water on her. Of course none of those work, and he is mortified when he finally hears what he has to do!

A hilarious twist on the fairy tale Sleeping Beauty, this is a companion to the hit Falling for Rapunzel.
Leah Wilcox loves poetry and picture books. She lives in Central Oregon with her family.Born in Surrey, England, Lydia Monks currently resides in London with her two cats.

Editorial Reviews

"This irrepressible read-aloud will have the audience shouting directions at the poor hapless Prince." -Kirkus"Filled with puns and lively wordplay, the rhyming plays off traditional plot elements, and readers familiar with the original will enjoy making comparisons." --School Library Journal"The creators of Falling for Rapunzel offer another creatively warped version of a familiar tale, again pairing chipper rhymed couplets with dynamic mixed-media art. . . . A surprise ending will leave readers thoroughly roused." --Publishers Weekly
