Sleeping Beauty No More is the second book I’ve read from Aisha Urooj, and I’ve got to say, this one is my favorite! I love retellings, and Urooj took quite a turn of events in this book. As the title suggests, Aurora wakes up after pricking her finger on the spindle and being cursed. BUT, she didn’t wake because of true love’s kiss. Thinking back to the Disney movie, I was wondering where the prince was…
I did not see his situation coming! What a jaw drop!
Urooj takes us on an adventure as Aurora tries to take back control of her kingdom and defeat the witch. With new characters about, we get plenty of new interactions, settings, and drama.
Sleeping Beauty No More is a quick and easy book to read. I think it could become a favorite for young children in grade school. As I was reading, I thought that if I had a daughter, this is something I think she’d enjoy.
