The Sleeper and The Spindle

Neil Gaiman, author of lots of books, and Chris Riddell, illustrator of lots of books, including lots of books with Neil Gaiman, have collaborated again on a fabulous picture book called The Sleeper and the Spindle.  It has been in the library for a while now and is one of those books which is browsed and wondered over, a bit like the Maps book mentioned in the post below.

It is a story based on the Sleeping Beauty legend, but it is much more than just a story, it is full of new additions, interesting ideas and characters how seem to leap off the page, this is a book to treasure and to look over from time to time.  If you like to draw, then this book has almost magical properties.  It is on display at the issues desk at the moment.
