The Sleeper and the Spindle by Neil Gaiman & Chris Riddell
My favorite out of this inventory thus far-fairy tale re-tellings are among my absolute favorite types of books. I highly recommend this book for lovers of Neil Gaiman or fairy tale retellings.
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 (without illustrations) in Rags & Bones (Little, Brown, 2013). This is the first time it is being published as an illustrated, stand-alone edition, and the book is a beautiful work of art.
