Waking Beauty by Leah Wilcox
The fabulous team that brought us the hysterical “Falling For Rapunzel” returns with their take on “Sleeping Beauty”. “Once upon a Saturday, in search of dragons he could slay…” Prince Charming happens upon a castle reverberating with a terrible thunder. Certain he has found a dragon, the prince enters only to discover to his dismay that the noisy disturbance is caused not by a dragon but by a “snoring girl in bed.” Adding to his disappointment is the pronouncement by the little fairies hovering over the girl that he must find a way to rouse the sleeping lass. Ignoring the poor fairies who try to explain to him the proper wake-up call, the prince proceeds to try everything from yelling to shooting the princess out of a cannon. At last, the fairies get through to him and the look on the horrified Prince’s face is priceless as he exclaims, “One hundred years of morning breath. Wow! That could be the kiss of death!” Hilarious from first snore to final kiss.
