This is one of my favorite series! It’s magical, adventurous and very clean for kids. Plus… IT’S JUST PLAIN AWESOME!!!

The book is about Sleeping Beauty’s sister. Annie can not be touched by magic, so when everyone else in the kingdom falls asleep, it’s up to her to break the curse.

Everything about this book is awesome, but there is a lot of magic in the book. The magic is all very Disney like and nothing in it screams “creepy” . But, per-usual ask your parents before reading. (Though this is a very good book and super clean, so I highly suggest reading it)

Over all, I love this series! And it’s a great book for kids and teens, though more for girls than boys… (Sorry guys) I hope you all have a lovely day! -The Young Llama Reader.


  • A very fun, magical adventure
  • A great book for girls of all ages


  • Lots of magic

Princess Annie is frustratingly (and luckily) resistant to magic. When her sister Gwen pricks her finger and the whole castle falls asleep, only Annie stays awake. Now it’s up to Annie to find a prince to kiss her sister and break the spell. But who is her sister’s true love? And what about Annie’s own happily-ever-after? Annie travels through a fairy tale land filled with characters both familiar and new in this original adventure from the beloved author of The Tales of the Frog Princess.
