I fear for when I finish the Fables series. I love it that much.

I actually really liked this one! Beautiful art (some of the best I've seen in the Fables books), and solid writing. I've been kind of bored with Fables lately, and this is the first spinoff I've really enjoyed. It got me excited about the Fables universe again. Yay.
Huge fan of Willingham's work but this was just blah. I know your not suppose to judge a book by its cover, but its a little miss leading. the fact that it shows the ladies; snow white, rose red, beauty and brair rose. The story is only about sleeping beauty and a small short about belle at the end....
Amazing artwork. Liked the story. Sleeping Beauty was always my favorite fairy tale.
