Beauty Sleep: A Retelling of "Sleeping Beauty" (Once upon a Time) by Cameron Dokey Mass Market . Due to the short length of the Once Upon a Time novels, this leaves less time than I would have preferred for detailing Belle's interactions with the Beast

Only 12 left in stock (more on the way). Due to the short length of the Once Upon a Time novels, this leaves less time than I would have preferred for detailing Belle's interactions with the Beast. However, I loved the addition of the Heartwood Tree and the role it plays in their relationship.

Cameron Dokey's contributions to the "Once Upon a Time" series are undoubtedly the finest, but her retelling of Cinderella is initially a little hit and miss. The series as a whole involves writers taking a recognizable fairytale and tweaking it a little into something that is still familiar but which provides a different point of view. This can involve changing the setting or the time period, removing all the magical elements that make up the original tale, or simply fleshing out the characterization

A Retelling of Sleeping Beauty. and so long ago that the time I speak of can be remembered only in a story, a virtuous king and queen (my parents) ruled over a land that was fair and prosperous (though it wasn’t all that large).

Cameron Dokey; Mahlon F Craft. Beauty Sleep is a part of the "Once Upon a Time" series

Cameron Dokey; Mahlon F Craft. I was expecting to be massively disappointed in any retelling of Sleeping Beauty after reading Spindle's End, because, I mean, c'mon. But this was just great. Beauty Sleep is a part of the "Once Upon a Time" series. I'm an avid fan of this particular sub genre of fantasy and bought several books from this series when I first saw them, lured by the synopses and pretty covers. Thus far, the series has delivered interesting variants of old classics, and as with any series, some books are better than others.

Sleeping Beauty", also known as "La Belle au bois dormant", is a fairytale featured on ABC's Once Upon a Time

Sleeping Beauty", also known as "La Belle au bois dormant", is a fairytale featured on ABC's Once Upon a Time. It was written by French author Charles Perrault and incorporated in the book "Stories or Fairy Tales from Past Times with Morals" in 1697. Another version of this story was written by the German authors, The Brothers Grimm, under the title "Little Briar Rose".

"ONCE UPON A TIME" IS TIMELESS The Princess Aurore has had an unusual childhood. Cursed at birth, Aurore is fated to prick her finger at the age of sixteen and sleep for one hundred years -- until a prince awakens her with a kiss. So, to protect her, Aurore's loving parents forbid any task requiring a needle. Unable to sew or embroider like most little princesses, Aurore instead explores the castle grounds and beyond, where her warmth and generosity soon endear her to the townspeople. their devotion to the spirited princess grows as she does. On her sixteenth birthday, Aurore learns that the impending curse will harm not only her, but the entire kingdom as well. Unwilling to cause suffering, she will embark on a quest to end the evil magic. The princess's bravery will be rewarded as she finds adventure, enchantment, a handsome prince, and ultimately her destiny

DEAD-SHOT
So you know the basic idea: Princess Aurore had a christening party which was interrupted by a slighted uninvited guest who casts a curse over the poor child. When she turns 16 she will prick her finger and one drop of blood will fall and Aurore will die. Another guest (not fairies in this version at least)utters a counterspell. Aurore will not die, she will fall into a deep, deep sleep that will last 100 years until she is awakened by the kiss of a prince. This was similar enough to the original tale, that I felt comfortable sinking into "Beauty Sleep"... but it was the differences that kept me intrigued. In this version, Aurore's older cousin Oswald lives in the palace and expects to be the heir to the kingdom, (mostly due to the dire predictions made about Aurore's life expectancy). The first part of the book was very good. It detailed Aurore's life in the palace, and how Oswald gained her parent's permission to allow Aurore to roam the palace gardens. Aurore gained plenty of freedoms after that and her parents became more relaxed in their protectiveness of her. In the second part of the book Aurore runs away from the palace and meets her destiny. I don't want to give any of the secrets away so I won't detail this very much except to say that I mostly guessed the twist, which was a little disappointed. My other complaint is that the author really spent a good portion of pages saying nothing at all. There was a lot of rambling and while some passages gave good insights into the characters and the ideas of magic and love, quite a bit was pointless. These pages caused my mind to wander and distracted from the otherwise beautiful story. "Beauty Sleep" was still very enjoyable and I look forward to other books in this series.

Mmm... I DID think this story was mediocre, which makes me wonder about the series. I think it is fine for young girls under 15. But knowing the Princess is 16 is enough to make me want more from the storytelling, which didn't happen. I feel you get what you pay for here. The author is a good writer, and got the book off to a tremendous start with her explanations of what magic is. Unfortunately, it goes downhill from there. You don't get your 12 fairies here, or even three fairies, or for that matter - ANY fairies! In my mind, that is unacceptable. You don't get a princess who grows up in the woods, you get a princess in pants! The cover-art is deceptive and the book is nothing like the painting you see there. So this didn't keep me. Part of her life was to spend time with the peasants, which lasted about two paragraphs. Aurore does connect with one major character, but seemed to have a bigger personality than what was developed. Although I finished the book, it was a strain to stay with it and see how the story would play out. For me, the romance and the mystery and magic were nil. I also did not care for some of the underwordly descriptions of supernatural occurrences (which were more off-putting than interesting). Being a student of the supernatural, I was not feeling it in this writing. (I got a sense that the company didn't pay the author adequately to write something memorable.) Again, OK for anyone under 15, who might be inspired later to write something better themselves!

I wasn't sure at first when I started reading the story, the beginning was very wordy and almost felt overwhelming. Once I had a feel for the author's way of writing, I couldn't wait to read more. It was one of those 'I'll just read one more chapter...' and then all of a sudden I was reading the epilogue. I love how the short fairy tale I grew up with could be expanded in such depth without losing me in the descriptions and details.
For me the book is definitely a keeper. I've already purchased more of the 'Retelling' books.

I love the retelling of fairy tales. The Once Upon a Time series is great. I've read most of them ,over and over and over. They are a wonderful re imagining of those tell. I'm not going to give any details so I won't spoil it for you. It is just a very good read.

This book was highly imaginative and magical, with twists and turns every direction. It's a wonderful tale that will make you want to stroll through a garden and enter La Foret. Pick it up for a magical evening of sitting under a tree on a spring day. I HIGHLY recommend all of Cameron Dokey's works in this series!

Donkey's retelling are always. So wonderfully twisted yet still terribly enjoyable. This story immediately goes in a new direction and ends very familiarly. There are many memorable points throughout the story and a theme which burns true for any who may encounter it.
I liked the retelling of this classic tale and like the different twists and turns. Couldn't put this down until the end
