Empowering fairy tales

Author Neil Gaiman recently published a reimagined fairy tale in which Snow White puts her wedding plans on hold, swaps her dress for chain mail and a sword, and sets off on a quest to rescue fellow princess Sleeping Beauty and her people. With stunning artwork by Chris Riddell, whose illustration is featured here, "The Sleeper and the Spindle" features Gaiman's characteristic dark humor and will appeal to older children, ages 10 and up, and adults alike -- to learn more, visit http://www.amightygirl.com/the-sleeper-and-the-spindle
