Sleeping Bunny
Retold by Emily Snowell Keller

Renowned painter Pamela Silin-Palmer follows up her last picture book, Bunny and the Beast, with another delightfully tongue-in-cheek retelling of a favorite fairy tale: Sleeping Bunny. In collaboration with her daughter, writer Emily Snowell Keller, the artist has added a twist to a classic story--recasting the characters as animals and dressing them in medieval finery--while retaining all of the essential elements. In this "Sleeping Beauty," Beauty becomes Bunny, the fairies are a rainbow of winged piglets, and the prince is a glorious hare in golden armor. Each spread offers lush imagery, exquisite detail, and an abundance of humor, creating a book to be thoroughly enjoyed by readers of all ages for years to come!

This is one of the most beautiful children's books that has come across my desk! With my grandson sitting on my lap, I opened the pages and we immediately entered a world of fairy dust, flying pigs, scampering mice, glorious sunflowers, majestic frogs, bright-eyed rats, rainbows, dragonflies, flower garlands... and a story to match! Each page invited us to find little animals and magical fairies, search for the moon or rainbow, and talk about the flowers and of course, the bunny and her fate. I laughed, as other adults will, when I read that the mean fairy, named Mildew, was not invited because the bunny family did not have enough china. Politically correct for this time, the Prince and Princess bunnies first grew to love each other before marrying. And of course, lived hoppily ever after.
