Both the Good and Bad Fairies come together to relate the complete tale of Sleeping Beauty. The Bad Fairy used to be the best, but some magical mishaps put her out of favour with the King. She attempts to do good, but only ends up "cursing" the princess by accident. The Good Fairy knows her sister all to well, and realizes she has good intentions, so she works hard to fix these mistakes. Two different fonts distinguish the words of one fairy from the other. A colourful palette appropriately fits in with this world of magic. In the end the BF finally gets it right. While changing the character's alignment is an interesting prospect it did not meet its full potential. Many of the other titles in this series, either cleverly handle their subject, or make it funny. This one does not meet the high standards that some of the others set, still it has an interesting point of view, and the questions in the back make it a good book for some intellectual thought.
