I like this book because of the illustrations and story line. The main idea of this story was retelling of sleeping beauty, only this beauty snored and a mouse had to save the day. The illustrations of the book were amazing, they had vivid colors and helped the story move along. If a reader were confused by the wording the illustrations were coordinated enough to just look at them and they would understand. The story line was interesting because it was not the classical sleeping beauty story. When the prince arrived he thought a bear were sleeping not the princess. In the end the mouse saved the day and found out his wife snored as well. I found it perfect for second graders that may here their parent snore. ( )

Snoring Beauty is a sweetly hilarious spin on the classic fairy tale "Sleeping Beauty." Written in bouncy rhymed verse perfect for reading aloud, this whimsical reimagining from Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen is sure to appeal to children and parents alike.

Tucked in his little bed inside the castle walls, Mouse is eager to get a good night's sleep before his wedding tomorrow. But just as he begins to drift off, he's awoken by a tremendous roar. SNOOOOGA-SNOOOOOM! KER-SCHUPPP! Sleeping Beauty is snoring . . . again! When the handsome Prince Max arrives, Mouse thinks he's found the perfect scheme: He'll convince the prince to kiss Beauty and wake her up! But when Prince Max learns that Beauty is the one making such monstrous noises, will he still want to kiss her . . . or will he run away from the noisy princess, leaving her snoring for another hundred years?

"A new spin on "Sleeping Beauty" told from the perspective of a little mouse who can't get to sleep because of the princess's very loud snoring"--
