Reviews

"[Reading Beauty] will find many fans, especially among those looking for more titles with a multiethnic (or galactic) cast of characters."-- Booklist
"A nifty addition to the shelves of feminist fractured fairy tales." -- Kirkus Reviews
"The rhyming text cleverly spins the story to involve reading at every turn. [And, ] Hunt's mixed-media illustrations incorporate eye-pleasing sci-fi details." --Horn Book
"This modern retake on 'Sleeping Beauty' is an interstellar fairy tale that is vibrantly illustrated and fun to read-aloud. The rhyming text keeps the story lighthearted and lively. Lex is a brown-skinned protagonist and she and her Prince seem to jump off the page. The story shares a positive message about reading, helping others, and redemption. A great one-on-one read for caregivers, and perfect for group sharing in a library or classroom setting."--School Library Journal
