Wednesday Wish List: The Sleeper and the Spindle by Neil Gaiman

I want, I want I want.

I had found The Sleeper and the Spindle by Neil Gaiman on one of my Amazon searches for forthcoming books. The version I found was an import from the UK. I was going to buy it anyway because the description was just so dang good. I mean, metallic ink?? I am so there. I could just feel the book n my hands. And the cover is just so pretty. I must have it. Sadly, I must wait until September.

The Sleeper and the Spindle by Neil Gaiman

Book Description (from Amazon):
Publication Date: September 22, 2015

A thrillingly reimagined fairy tale from the truly magical combination of author Neil Gaiman and illustrator Chris Riddell - weaving together a sort-of Snow White and an almost Sleeping Beauty with a thread of dark magic, which will hold readers spellbound from start to finish. On the eve of her wedding, a young queen sets out to rescue a princess from an enchantment. She casts aside her fine wedding clothes, takes her chain mail and her sword and follows her brave dwarf retainers into the tunnels under the mountain towards the sleeping kingdom. This queen will decide her own future - and the princess who needs rescuing is not quite what she seems. Twisting together the familiar and the new, this perfectly delicious, captivating and darkly funny tale shows its creators at the peak of their talents. Lavishly produced, packed with glorious Chris Riddell illustrations enhanced with metallic ink, this is a spectacular and magical gift.
