One of the fairytales I had the most unanswered questions about when I was a child was Sleeping Beauty. There were so many things about it that didn’t make sense as I reread the story and thought over the storyline. By mid primary school I even went so far as to search out several different version of the story to see if other writers had answered any of my many questions. Sadly they hadn’t so I continued to come up with my own answers. Much of what went into my retelling of Sleeping Beauty are those answers I came up with in primary school. Ones I thought on for many hours. Answering then rethinking and altering them a little bit each time until the story made sense to me.
Fairytales Retold: Sleeping Beauty is now available on Amazon. This retelling is told from the perspective of the prince.
