    The zombies were a nice touch, but how could the parents just forget about the curse?

    This variation was a little too short for my taste and not very descriptive.

    The illustrations were great and the language was modern. I liked that it was closer to the original tale with the 12 (13) fairies.

    While I love graphic novels, particularly of the dark and twisty variety, this one had one specific section that was so bordering on plagiarism from Disney's version that it was embarrassing. Just using synonyms to replace words does not make the sentence your own. Powell’s Version: “The Princess shall indeed grow in beauty and goodness, deeply loved by all who know her. But on her fifteenth birthday, she will cut her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel . . . and she will die!!” Disney’s Ver While I love graphic novels, particularly of the dark and twisty variety, this one had one specific section that was so bordering on plagiarism from Disney's version that it was embarrassing.

But, before the sun sets on her 16th birthday, she shall prick her finger, on the spindle of a spinning wheel—AND DIE!” Those two phrases are just far too close to one another for Powell to call his work his own.

    We all know the story of Sleeping Beauty, but I loved the small twists to the tale that this graphic novel rendition spun to keep it new and interesting. The drawings were incredible unique and drew my eye when I first looked at it. I can only compare it to that of Tim Burton. The characters have big eyes and the overall feel of the graphic novel is darker. I absolutely enjoyed reading the History of Sleeping Beauty at the end of the book as well as glancing through the discussion questions and w We all know the story of Sleeping Beauty, but I loved the small twists to the tale that this graphic novel rendition spun to keep it new and interesting.

I absolutely enjoyed reading the History of Sleeping Beauty at the end of the book as well as glancing through the discussion questions and writing prompts that were to go along with the book. Another great book to use in elementary schools and elementary school libraries.

    The illustrations in this one were so weird (I hated the characters' eyes, the prince's in particular), and didn't do a good job showing perspective so sometimes I couldn't tell what exactly was happening in a panel. Combined with one of the lamest fairy tale stories, this is probably my least favorite of the graphic novels so far.

    The story is the traditional telling of the classic with clear, bright illustrations. At the end of the graphic novel, the author includes a glossary, a short history of the story, discussion questions, writing prompts, and a website for further exploration.

    I was hoping for more. Even still, a good quick read for young readers.

    For the gloomy gothic young reader. Nothing remarkable, but a decent effort with a nice glossary in the back.

    Thoroughly enjoyable. The art style wasn't my favorite but it was still nice.

    I wasn't a huge fan of the artwork, it looked like something a 7th grader could draw...
