Sleeping Beauty

Author: Lynn Roberts-MaloneyIllustrator: David Roberts

A cleverly crafted reimagining, dismantling gender stereotypes. An intriguing blend of fairy tale thorns and science fiction tropes, wrapped around a 1950s teen who loves reading about futuristic worlds. Roberts’ fashion design background and art nouveau influences are reflected in the alien green, psychedelic swirls, recurring motifs and Rennie Mackintosh-inspired blue roses.
