Disney Princess: Sleeping Beauty
Adapted by Catherine Hapka
This is one of my all time favorite Disney movies, I absolutely love this story! So, naturally, I have several books of this story. This version I actually got recently for Christmas, it was purchased in Barnes and Noble, but can be found on Amazon via this link: Disney Princess Sleeping Beauty
Before even talking about the story quality, I have to mention the illustrations. This book is illustrated by specific artists at Global Art Development who work on Disney storybooks. In other words, the illustrations are INCREDIBLE! you would think they just took scenes out of the movie and stuck them into the book. The likenesses are superior and the colors are so bright. The illustrations alone make this book stand out among others.
With such amazing pictures, do you think the story would be less than awesome? Of course not! I am happy to report that this is a high quality storybook all the way around! There is a great amount of detail in this book. They even go so far as to mention Phillip falling into the water and hanging his cape up so the animals can take it. The storyline follows very well with the movie.
Overall, if you want to get a version of Sleeping Beauty for your child, this is definitely the one to get!
