The Waking Prince
“Ingenious software design” and “lively, fluent prose...” (Kirkus Reviews)
“...written with fairy tale–appropriate language and imagery while raising contemporary issues of class and power. Sharp-eyed users may note allusions to traditional tales in the beautifully detailed pencil drawings...” (The Horn Book)
"The illustrations are beautiful, detailed and engaging." (Parents' Club of Palo Alto and Menlo Park)
Have you ever wondered when a witch would devise a sleeping spell so powerful that a prince’s kiss does no good? Furthermore, has it ever struck you as odd that princesses but no peasants find themselves on the wrong side of a crooked wand? Prince Jeremy is born into a kingdom arranged like no other—a kingdom that calls for far greater compassion and ingenuity on the part of the young prince.
As you read this story, a rare elven story dimension called The Couplet will take you from book page to the actual scenes upon which the story is based. So, settle into 70-fully illustrated pages of story, 35 elven Couplets and a fairy tale that has waited centuries to be told.
Before and after the fairy tale, there is also more to enjoy...
* An additional story, “The Story of the Story,” recounts the vexing situations that arose before the final ink of “The Waking Prince” dried. This true tale speaks of elven rules ignored by a stubborn writer elf, a story flaw found by Joble, the editor elf, and a tense meeting in the forest to determine the fate of the book.
* “The Next Story” peeks at private journal entries regarding a newly spotted character and a possible new story for the elves.
* And, from his treetop office, Tristan the Tarsier will explain how readers can become “The Last Character in the Story.”
Find out how elves work when they fashion a story from the ground up and, most importantly, learn if the good Princess Eleanor and the inn keeper’s beloved dog ever wake up...
