The sleeper and the spindle, by Neil Gaiman
The Sleeper and the spindle is a great take on the old day classic, sleeping beauty. When the queen overhears a rumour about a sleeping spell, she is curious and ventures towards the castle herself to take a look. But will she manage to avoid the witch and wake the sleeping princess, or will the queen herself fall under the mysterious sleeping spell around the island?
