The Sleeper and the Spindle by Neil Gaiman and Illustrated by Chris Riddell

23301545Whatever you think you know about Snow White and Sleeping Beauty, well just toss that out of the window. Neil Gaiman with the help of Chris Riddell weave together the two stories in a deliciously evil sort of way. There is clearly hits throughout the story of Snow White and Sleeping Beauty but there is enough mind blowing newness that this is worth a read. Add the fact that, it will take you about an hour to read the book and this is very much a must read.

The Sleeper and the Spindle does a phenomenal job of combining words and illustrations to create the ‘story’. The illustrations really add another dimension to this. I loved this so much that I also listened to the audio book. While I did enjoy the audio book, I liked the book with the illustrations better. I definitely recommend reading the book before listening to it.
