The Sleeper and the Spindle
by Neil Gaiman

This book is beautifully written and gorgeously illustrated. In this fairy tale reimagining, the sleeping spell that has struck Sleeping Beauty's castle is spreading over the neighboring lands. Day by day more people are overtaken by the sleep, until finally a nameless Queen is called to take action.  On the eve of her wedding night, she puts on her armor, calls for her horse, and goes on a quest to break the spell and save the kingdom. But like most great stories, everything is not as it seems.  Great twists, and a fast read. Did I mention the beautiful illustrations?
