Having previously illustrated a book celebrating the New York City Ballet's classic production of The Nutcracker, Valeria Docampo turns here to another ballet masterpiece by Tchaikovsky. In the classic fairy tale, Princess Aurora is put under a spell by an evil fairy, and saved by a prince's kiss. Paying homage to a 1991 revival of Balanchine's rendition of the ballet—and greatly inspired by the storyline, choreography, costumes, and sets—Docampo's elegant depictions of dancers in an enchanted realm are sure to strike the fancy of readers 4 to 8.
