    Full of standard fairy tale elements and story structure, with kind of a weak resolution to the princess sleep problem, though I like the longer length of the text and the translation that resulted a rather lavish vocabulary But I am utterly charmed by the mixed media c...

    3 1 2 starsIf ever there were a book that showed the consequences of not sleeping, it would be The Princess Who Could Not Sleep Author An Leyson combines a fun story, whimsical artwork and elements of her own daughter s drawings to create a tale young children will gobble up.

    The pictures were REALLY cool, mixed media collage with chalk, thread, foil, etc The story leaves a lot to be desired though.

    When a princess cannot fall asleep at night and no one else in the palace can get any rest, the king promises to grant a wish to anyone who can come up with a solution.
