From the Back Cover
Princesses Aurora and Luna have grown up in a palace on a high cliff by the sea, carefully protected by their parents, the king and queen. No one visits, the girls can't stray beyond the castle walls, and, curiously, all sharp objects are forbidden. But accidents will happen--particularly when an old curse still has power. Soon, in spite of all precautions, Aurora is struggling not to slip into an enchanted sleep. Frantic, the princesses accept the help of a young fisherman named Symon and embark on a daring ocean voyage to find their godmother--a fairy who may be able to break the spell. From fearsome beasts to raging storms to a vengeful enchantress, many dangers befall them, yet they must not give up . . . For if Aurora sleeps, she will not wake for one hundred years.
