To answer questions about The Sleeper and the Spindle, please sign up.
Lucy Takeda If your children appreciate the rather gruesome original fairy tales, they'll probably like this.
CJ Definitely a matter for parents to decide for their kids. Read it first and see what you think!
Kat I think it would be suitable for your children. It doesn't have sexual content and there's a minimum of violence.
Arya That should be fine, as long as they've already heard the stories of Sleeping Beauty and Snow White, which they most probably have.

Radclyffe U-Haul There are definitely some unsettling scenes but on the whole, I think it would be fine for that age.
