The Wide Awake Princess

The  Wide Awake Princess

After being painstakingly protected for her first sixteen years from pricking her finger on a spinning wheel and thus invoking the curse of sleeping for a hundred years, Princess Gwennie, the most beautiful princess in the land, is tricked by a tiny gold one that was smuggled into the castle. The entire castle falls asleep except for her sister Annie, who’s lack of having any magic bestowed upon her at birth, proves to be a blessing as she travels the land with her father’s footman, Liam, to find her sister’s true love prince. The kiss from this prince will be the only one that will wake Gwennie and break the curse. Annie and Liam form a formidable team as they meet familiar and new fairy tale characters, discover some twists and turns to each other’s stories, and begin a fairytale of their own. 272 pages Ages 8-12
