'I would have loved this book as a child'.
Based on my original storybook The Fairytale Princess, intricate fairytale images, cut out from the pages of classic fables, are now brought to life in three dimensions, in this beautiful paper theatre.
Everything a child needs to reenact the well-loved story of Sleeping Beauty is provided, including interchangeable scenery and delightful moveable versions of the characters.
Inside the ingeniously designed pop-up theatre stage between the two covers is a jewel box of moveable pieces: scenery sheets set the stage; characters add the story; and colorful props provide the finishing touch. The book contains a pocket to hold the pieces when they’re not in use, and an enclosed booklet contains instructions on how to stage your own performances of Sleeping Beauty for family and friends, including a script. The Sleeping Beauty Theatre will be coveted by children and adults alike who love to make believe.
'I'm delighted that Thames and Hudson have seen further potential in the illustrations I created for The Fairy-tale Princess, and have worked hard to publish this book, following on from The Fairy-tale Princess's success'.
