Sleeping Little Rose
Once upon a time there was a woman and a man who had just about everything they wanted. Still, they were not happy. Every day they said to each other: Imagine if we had a child!
When they finally got their wish fulfilled, they had a big celebration. Everyone was invited to come celebrate the awaited baby. But the lynx, the forest’s shyest animal, they forget to invite. Something they shouldn’t have. Soon, the entire farm is sleeping, surrounded by frosty rose hips and thorns of ice.
With watercolor, playfulness and new perspectives, illustrator Ane Gustavsson has made a modern adaptation of the tale of Sleeping Beauty, one of our most beloved fairytales. Princes and princesses have shed their crowns, castles have become ordinary homes and the fairies forest animals.
Ane Gustavsson is an illustrator and a violinist. She has worked with authors like Lennart Hellsing and Jujja Wieslander.
