Light rubbing to tips of the spine, otherwise in good condition. Unpaged. 'Thorn Rose is the Grimm Brother's version of the story of the Sleeping Beauty. 'The Sleeping Beauty' is one of the most memorable and poetic of all fairy tales, but its effect is sometimes blunted by over-wordy narration. The Grimm version is notably concise; not a word is wasted, and the story emerges in all its strangeness. Erroll Le Cain illustrations for this version is rich and varied in colour and full of delightful and unexpected details, they create a fairytale world of magic and marvels to which children will want to return again and again'.
