Wide Awake Princess

Middle School Fiction

VG/E Baker, E. D. Wide-Awake Princess. Bloomsbury, 2010. 261 p.

This is a humorous retelling of Sleeping Beauty with characters from some other familiar tales thrown in. In a world where everyone is blessed with magical gifts at birth, Annie's gift is to be immune to magic. So when her older sister inevitably pricks her finger on a spinning wheel and the entire castle falls asleep, she is still awake. Now she must journey throughout the kingdom searching for princes to try and wake her sister with a kiss.
