A beautiful baby, a sinister spell, a pricked finger, a hundred-year sleep, a true-love wake-up kiss. We all know the story of Sleeping Beauty, but not the one that Will and Mary Pope Osborne tell -- with a handsome prince named Bob, a feisty princess who wakes him from his enchanted slumber, and charming artwork from acclaimed illustrator Giselle Potter. Here's a fresh, magical reworking of the classic fairy tale that's sure to have kids begging, "Read it again!" As soon as he touched the wheel's spindle, a splinter pricked his finger. "Ouch!" said Bob. "Good night, Bobby," said the old woman.

Book Review: Sleeping Bobby by Osborne, Will & Mary Pope - Reviewed by Sheepcoate (15 Aug 2013)
Sleeping Bobby is not what I thought it would be. I had the impression that would be a fun read, full of full take offs of the original story, but I was dissapointed.
The story is not a take off but it, is much the same as the original but instead of a princess there is a prince. I guess it was written for a equal sex reason or other, but there was nothing new to keep my interested.
The illustrations are interesting and nicely done and it was fun to see all the Princesses lined up. Overall a book that can be missed.
