The Sleeper and the Spindle

88 printed pages
In what calls their «greatest [collaboration] to date," New York Times bestselling and Newbery and Carnegie Medal-winning author Neil Gaiman and Kate Greenaway-winning illustrator Chris Riddell have created a thrillingly reimagined fairy tale, «told in a way only Gaiman can» and featuring “stunning metallic artwork” (
The result is a beautiful and coveted edition of The Sleeper and the Spindle that the Guardian calls «a refreshing, much-needed twist on a classic story.”
In this captivating and darkly funny tale, Neil Gaiman and Chris Riddell have 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.
This story was originally published (without illustrations) in Rags & Bones (Little, Brown, 2013). This is the first time it is being published as an illustrated, stand-alone edition, and the book is a beautiful work of art.
