Book Excerpt :

Once lived a king and a queen whose only dream was to finally have a child. Their dream came true and the queen gave birth to a breathtaking beauty. They invited all of the fairies in the land but forgot about one. She was so furious that she cursed the poor little girl. She was going to prick her hand with a spindle, and die of it. Fortunately one of the good godmothers managed to lessen the curse. If such thing happened, the girl was not going to die. She was just going to sleep for a 100 years. The king did everything he could to get rid of every spindle and spinning wheel. But the curse was stronger than that. And when the girl turned sixteen, she pricked her hand and fell asleep. Who disenchanted the girl and what followed after that? Find out in "The Sleeping Beauty". Charles Perrault (1628-1703) was a French author. He is known for being a pioneer of the fairy tale genre, deriving his stories from traditional folk tales. His most famous stories include "Puss in Boots", "Little Red Riding Hood", "Sleeping Beauty", and "Cinderella". His stories have been adapted to stage and screen countless times, most notably by Disney with classic animated films like "Sleeping Beauty" and "Cinderella". His story "Puss in Boots" was the basis for the character from the animated films "Shrek 2" and "Puss in Boots".

The third thrilling novel in the Under Suspicion series by #1 New York Times bestselling author and “Queen of Suspense” Mary Higgins Clark and Alafair Burke follows television producer Laurie Moran as she tries to help a woman she believes was wrongfully convicted of killing her fiancé. Fifteen years after being convicted of murdering her fiancé—the famed philanthropist Hunter Raleigh III—Casey Carter is determined to clear her name. Though she has served her time, she finds that she is still living under suspicion. Going on the true crime show Under Suspicion seems to be her only hope to prove her innocence. The show’s producer, Laurie Moran, also believes in her innocence and wants to help Casey. But with Alex Buckley taking a break from the show—cooling his potential romance with Laurie—Under Suspicion introduces a new on-air host in Ryan Nichols, a hot shot legal whiz with a Harvard Law degree, a Supreme Court clerkship, experience as a federal prosecutor. Ryan has no problems with steering the show, and even tries to stop Laurie from taking on Casey’s case because he’s so certain she’s guilty. An egomaniacal new boss, a relentless gossip columnist, and Casey’s longstanding bad reputation: Laurie must face this and more to do what she believes is right, to once and for all prove Casey’s innocence—that is, if she’s innocent.

Book Short Summary:

Before E.L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey and Sylvia Day's Bared to You, there was Anne Rice’s New York Times best seller The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty In the traditional folktale of "Sleeping Beauty," the spell cast upon the lovely young princess and everyone in her castle can only be broken by the kiss of a Prince. It is an ancient story, one that originally emerged from and still deeply disturbs the mind's unconscious. In the first book of the trilogy, Anne Rice (author of Beauty's Kingdom), writing as A.N. Roquelaure, retells the Beauty story and probes the unspoken implications of this lush, suggestive tale by exploring its undeniable connection to sexual desire. Here the Prince awakens Beauty, not with a kiss, but with sexual initiation. His reward for ending the hundred years of enchantment is Beauty's complete and total enslavement to him . . . as Anne Rice explores the world of erotic yearning and fantasy in a classic that becomes, with her skillful pen, a compelling experience. Readers of Fifty Shades of Grey will indulge in Rice’s deft storytelling and imaginative eroticism, a sure-to-be classic for years to come. Praise for The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty: "Articulate, baroque, and fashionably pornographic." —Playboy "Something very special . . . at once so light and yet so haunting." —The Advocate

Book Short Summary:

In Sweden, hundreds of refugee children fall into a state that resembles sleep for months or years at a time. In Le Roy, a town in upstate New York, teenage girls develop involuntary twitches and seizures that spread like a conta­gion. In the U.S. Embassy in Cuba, employees experience headaches and memory loss after hearing strange noises during the night. These are only a few of the many sus­pected culture-bound psychosomatic syndromes—specific sets of symptoms that exist in a particular culture or environment—that affect people throughout the world. In The Sleeping Beauties, Dr. Suzanne O’Sullivan—an award-winning Irish neurologist—investigates psychosomatic disorders, traveling the world to visit communi­ties suffering from these so-called mystery illnesses. From a derelict post-Soviet mining town in Kazakhstan to the Mosquito Coast of Nicaragua to the heart of the María Mountains in Colombia, O’Sullivan records the remark­able stories of syndromes related to her by people from all walks of life. Riveting and often distressing, these case studies are recounted with compassion and humanity. In examining the complexity of psychogenic illness, O’Sullivan has written a book of both fascination and se­rious concern as these syndromes continue to proliferate around the globe.

Book Short Summary:

But said, that in the future years the Princess young should die, By pricking of a spindle-point—ah, woeful prophecy! But now, a kind young Fairy, who had waited to the last, Stepped forth, and said, “No, she shall sleep till a hundred years are past; And then she shall be wakened by a King's son—truth I tell— And he will take her for his wife, and all will yet be well.” In vain in all her father's Court the spinning-wheel's forbid In vain in all the country-side the spindles sharp are hid; For in a lonely turret high, and up a winding stair, There lives an ancient woman who still turns her wheel with care. The Princess found her out one day, and tried to learn to spin; Alas! the spindle pricked her hand—the charm had entered in! And down she falls in death-like sleep: they lay her on her bed, And all around her sink to rest—a palace of the dead! A hundred years pass—still they sleep, and all around the place A wood of thorns has risen up—no path a man can trace. At last, a King's son, in the hunt, asked how long it had stood, And what old towers were those he saw above the ancient wood.

Book Short Summary:

The tale of The Sleeping Beauty is here retold by C. S. Evans, and illustrated by Arthur Rackham. Charles Seddon Evans (1883 – 1944) was an immensely well respected writer, editor and folklorist, who brings this magical story to life. He wrote this version of The Sleeping Beauty as a companion volume to Cinderella, also illustrated by Arthur Rackham. Evans expanded Charles Perrault’s original story of Cendrillon ou, La Petite Pantoufle de verre, and followed the later version recorded by the Brothers Grimm in giving his heroine the name of Briar-Rose. His version of Sleeping Beauty is similarly thought-through. It is a tale sure to delight both young and old – unique in its truly captivating narrative. This story of The Sleeping Beauty is further told with Rackham's wonderfully intricate black-and-white and colour silhouette illustrations. Arthur Rackham (1867-1939)is one of the most celebrated painters of the British Golden Age of Illustration (which encompassed the years from 1850 until the start of the First World War). Rackham's artistry is quite simply, unparalleled. Throughout his career, he developed a unique style, combining haunting humour with dream-like romance. Presented alongside the text, his illustrations further refine and elucidate Evan’s enchanting storytelling. Pook Press celebrates the great ‘Golden Age of Illustration‘ in children’s literature – a period of unparalleled excellence in book illustration from the 1880s to the 1930s. Our collection showcases classic fairy tales, children’s stories, and the work of some of the most celebrated artists, illustrators and authors.

Book Short Summary:

The book includes five famous tales of Charles Perrault illustrated by Walter Crane (40 color illustrations): Little Red Riding Hood; The Master Cat, or Puss in Boots; Blue Beard; The Sleeping Beauty in the Woods; Cinderella, or The Little Glass Slipper. Walter Crane was a prominent book illustrator of the 19th century. In cooperation with Edmund Evans, he designed picture books printed in color, which became the most popular children’s books at the time thanks to their high level of craftsmanship and low price. Crane’s style shows the influence of the art of the Renaissance and Japanese prints (ukiyo-e). He designed his books according to the belief that “children, like the ancient Egyptians, appear to see most things in profile and like definite statements in design. They prefer well-defined forms and bright, frank color. They don’t want to bother about three dimensions. They can accept symbolic representations. They themselves employ drawing... as a kind of picture-writing and eagerly follow a pictured story.” Crane’s work set the standards of taste in the Victorian children’s book industry and earned him the reputation of “the father of the illustrated children’s book”.

Book Short Summary:

“An original and impressively assured debut. A gem of a novel.” —Graeme Simsion, New York Times bestselling author of The Rosie Project A soaring, heartfelt debut following fifty-five days in the life of ten-year-old Rae, who must look after herself and her dog when her mother disappears. For as long as Rae can remember, it's been her and Mum, and their dog, Splinter; a small, deliberately unremarkable, family. They have their walks, their cooking routines, their home. Sometimes Mum disappears for a while to clear her head but Rae is okay with this because Mum always comes back. So, when Rae wakes to Splinter's nose in her face, the back door open, and no Mum, she does as she’s always done and carries on. She tends to the house, goes to school, walks Splinter, and minds her own business—all the while pushing down the truth she isn't ready to face. That is, until her grumpy, lonely neighbor Lettie—with her own secrets and sadness—falls one night and needs Rae's help. As the two begin to rely on each other, Rae's anxiety intensifies as she wonders what will happen to her when her mother's absence is finally noticed and her fragile world bursts open. A Million Things transforms a gut-wrenching story of abandonment and what it's like to grow up in a house that doesn't feel safe into an astonishing portrait of resilience, mental health, and the families we make and how they make us in return.

Book Short Summary:

"Tonight, I will master every inch of you. And you will probably feel the urge to beg me to stop, but you won’t, will you?” I was raised a princess, but a witch’s curse would seal my fate. Only one man dared to marry me—the future king of the fae. I’m a long way from home. In this palace, there is no freedom, no solitude. I am his possession. Corseted and gilded, or stripped and bound—either way, I’m his to claim. Anytime. Anywhere. It is the role of the king to dominate his bride, publicly and often. I am the living symbol of his strength. But there is no denying his charm and the power he holds to make me crave him. Even as it leads me to the most dreadful event of all—the day I must submit to him before the eyes of the entire court. However, he has a secret of his own. A secret that will lead me into the arms not just one men, but two at once—my beloved King Augustus and our loyal guard, Count Axel. A forbidden love none of us can turn away from. The witch who cursed me lurks in the shadows, ready to destroy us all. The Surrender of Sleeping Beauty was inspired by the life of Marie Antoinette and my love of fairy tales with a sensual twist. It contains intense sexual scenes and some darker themes, along with much decadence, gardens and gowns, and a happily ever after that is both bitter and sweet. This series was originally published as the Queen of the Sun Palace and collects the following three books: BOOK ONE: PRISONER OF SILK BOOK TWO: PRISONER OF MIRRORS BOOK THREE: PRISONER OF DREAMS

There is a power in dreams. Some might even call it magic... Long ago in a kingdom far away, lived a fair king and his queen. For many years they longed for a child. Finally, the gods smiled upon them and they were blessed with a daughter whom they called Aurelia. She was the sunshine of their lives, until an evil fairy placed a curse upon her, damning her to sleep eternally until she should receive true love's first kiss. Forever to dream. But there is a power in dreams. Some might even call it magic... Aurelia learned from a young age that there was something special about her and that many who professed to be her friends only sought to steal or extinguish that power. With the help of a handsome prince and a mysterious mage named Rook, she's going to fight for her life and her kingdom... even if she has to do it from the dream realm. The first 18 years of Prince Edmond's life have always been about duty. A duty to his mother to honor her wishes, a duty to his father to carry on his legacy of power and fairness, and a duty to his kingdom to release them from the plague that had now terrified them for three generations. Aurelia is the first person Edmond has ever felt he could choose for himself. She could be the key to delivering his kingdom from their ill fate, but first, he'll have to earn her trust. Rook has a secret. He's not actually a simple mage and his chance meeting with Aurelia is not at all coincidental. He's been sent by his fairy guardian to ensure that her evil plan goes off without a hitch. There's only one problem, he underestimated the effect Aurelia would have on his heart. Can he do his duty and win his freedom from the fairy's clutches or will he be swayed by the goodness of her mortal enemy?

But Nate can't think about a relationship while his daughter, Lydia, remains in an unexplained coma after a car accident. He blames the girl's fiancé, a young mechanic whom Noelia believes is innocent in the tragedy. She's determined to help the young couple find their happily ever. Then strange events begin to occur, and it's up to Nate and Noelia to unravel the otherworldly messages. As the real danger closes in on the Westburys, can Nate learn to trust Noelia's instincts—and her love—to save them all?

Book Short Summary:

This wonderfully illustrated collection of fairy tales and rhymes, The Sleeping Beauty Picture Book is one of the celebrated 'Toy Books' produced by Walter Crane and Edmund Evans. Through a series of colour illustrations and integrated text, it will delight readers both young and old with such tales as 'Sleeping Beauty', 'Baby's Own Alphabet' and 'Bluebeard'. Walter Crane (1845 - 1915), was an English artist and book illustrator. He is considered to be the most influential, and among the most prolific, children's book creator of his generation. Alongside such names as Randolph Caldecott and Kate Greenaway, he was also one of the strongest contributors to the child's nursery theme. Crane's work is characteristically colourful and delightfully detailed, taking its inspiration from the Arts and Crafts movement (of which he was a member), as well as the iconic child-in-the-garden motif. The Sleeping Beauty Picture Book is a fantastic example of his art. Appearing alongside the text, Walter Crane's illustrations further refine and elucidate Hawthorne's enchanting storytelling. Pook Press celebrates the great ‘Golden Age of Illustration‘ in children’s literature – a period of unparalleled excellence in book illustration. We publish rare and vintage Golden Age illustrated books, in high-quality colour editions, so that the masterful artwork and story-telling can continue to delight both young and old.

Book Short Summary:

The Banbury Cross Series was a collection of 12 volumes of books edited by Grace Rhys and published in London by Dent in the 1890s. Each book is attractively illustrated with full page and partial page pen and ink drawings in a classic Art Nouveau style by leading artists of the era. Sleeping Beauty and Dick Whittington are united in this volume, which is superbly accompanied by Bell's black and white pen and ink drawings. Full of movement and grace, his delicately depicted characters veritably dance through the stories they illustrate. About the Illustrator: Robert Anning Bell (1863 - 1933) was an English artist and painter. He and a group of fellow artist-craftsmen brought about the last bloom of the Pre-Raphaelite movement. As well as painting in oil and watercolour, he also worked in stained glass and mosaic. Bell's illustrations are close in style to his contemporary Charles Ricketts. Many of the earliest children's books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Pook Press are working to republish these classic works in affordable, high quality editions, using the original text and artwork so these works can delight another generation of children.

Book Short Summary:

In 1999 the Maryinsky (formerly Kirov) Ballet and Theater in St. Petersburg re-created its 1890 production of Sleeping Beauty. The revival showed the classic work in its original sets and costumes and restored pantomime and choreography that had been eliminated over the past century. Nevertheless, the work proved unexpectedly controversial, with many Russian dance professionals and historians denouncing it. In order to understand how a historically informed performance could be ridiculed by those responsible for writing the history of Russian and Soviet ballet, Tim Scholl discusses the tradition, ideology, and popular legend that have shaped the development of Sleeping Beauty. In the process he provides a history of Russian and Soviet ballet during the twentieth century. A fascinating slice of cultural history, the book will appeal not only to dance historians but also to those interested in the arts and cultural policies of the Soviet and post-Soviet periods.

Book Short Summary:

“Fun for Twilight fans!” - School Library Journal Seventeen-year-old Bryar Rose has a problem. She’s descended from one of the three magical races—shifters, fairies, or witches. That makes her one of the Magicorum, and Magicorum always follow a fairy tale life template. In Bryar’s case, that template should be Sleeping Beauty. Should being the key word. Trouble is, Bryar is nowhere near the sleeping beauty life template. Not even close. She doesn’t like birds or woodland creatures. She can’t sing. And she certainly can’t stand Prince Philpot, the so-called “His Highness of Hedge Funds” that her aunties want her to marry. Even worse, Bryar’s having recurring dreams of a bad boy hottie and is obsessed with finding papyri from ancient Egypt. What’s up with that? “Exciting and well-conceived” – Kirkus All Bryar wants is to attend a regular high school with normal humans and forget all about shifters, fairies, witches, and the curse that Colonel Mallory the Magnificent placed on her. And she might be able to do just that--if only she can just keep her head down until her eighteenth birthday when the spell that’s ruined her life goes buh-bye. But that plan gets turned upside down when Bryar Rose meets Knox, the bad boy who’s literally from her dreams. Knox is a powerful werewolf, and his presence in her life changes everything, and not just because he makes her knees turn into Jell-O. If Bryar can’t figure out who—or what—she really is, it might cost both her and Knox their lives… as well as jeopardize the very nature of magic itself.
