Set in Alaska, this adaptation of Sleeping Beauty is a follow-up to Dwyer’s retelling of Cinderella, The Salmon Princess (over 50,000 copies sold).

When the queen of the King Salmon Fishery meets a talking salmon, she is told that a much-wished-for daughter will be born. At the birth celebration, one of the guests makes the pronouncement that the girl—named Alyeska—will choke on a salmon bone and die! But a wise old midwife speaks up to say that the girl will sleep for a long, long time and wake when her time is right. Even though the kingdom is built on salmon fishing, all fish is forbidden from the royal household. Still one day, Aleyska wanders into the woods and discovers salmon being smoked, and she tastes the forbidden food. Children and adults alike will delight in this imaginative Alaska version of the Sleeping Beauty story.
