The Sleeper and the Spindle
In this captivating and darkly funny tale, Neil Gaiman and Chris Riddell have twisted together the familiar and the new as well as the beautiful and the wicked to tell a brilliant version of Snow White's (sort of) and Sleeping Beauty's (almost) stories. This story was originally published in Rags & Bones.
The bestselling, award-bedecked Neil Gaiman and Chris Riddell are reunited in this irresistibly twisty fairy-tale reboot, with glorious gold ink adding lustre to an amazingly beautiful book.
Winner of Kate Greenaway Medal 2016.
