Bookseller Recommendation

The Sleeper and the Spindle

“This retelling is dark and twisty-- we don't get what we expect. The sleeper, the hero, and the adventure is all familiar and NEW at the same time. I first read this story in Rags & Bones: New Twists On Old Tales, a compilation of retellings. I really had liked Neil Gaiman's take on Sleeping Beauty and his inclusion of Snow White. Then it was published solo in this great graphic edition! This book is gorgeous, the illustrations are as enchanting, as tangled, as thorny, as haunting, and as eerie as the writing. I listened to the audio of this stunning book and was impressed again. This isn't a bedtime picture book-- this creepy creation is for older readers and the very brave!”

New York Times bestselling and Newbery and Carnegie Medal-winning author Neil Gaiman has created a thrillingly reimagined fairy tale, "told in a way only Gaiman can" (, that the Guardian calls "a refreshing, much-needed twist on a classic story."

In this captivating and darkly funny tale, Neil Gaiman has 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.
