The beginning of this review is the same as the review for Wilcox's other book because I spent some of my office hours Friday reading these two books. I know, I know, someday someone will figure out that letting me be a professor wasn't a good idea. I should definitely be chained to factory equipment somewhere. Anyway, here goes...

I don't read a lot of children's books (because I don't have children), but this book was written by the daughter of one of my current students, and she just loaned it to me. I LOVE this book and would strongly recommend it to anyone who has "picture book age" children.

In it, Sleeping Beauty's prince is a typical guy. When he hears a dreadful noise coming from a castle, he hopes for a dragon and is quite let-down when he discovers, "a snoring girl." Throughout the book the prince tries any way possible to wake Sleeping Beauty other than to kiss her (because, after all, he's heard that girls have germs).

This is a delightful rhyming picture book, and I LOVE the illustrations as well. I like both of Wilcox's books I have read so far.

And kudos to my student Nancy for raising such a talented daughter!...
