Summary (From the publisher):

A peasant boy is foraging for mushrooms in the forest when he discovers a gigantic bramble hedge, and for the next two years he spends all his free time cutting a tunnel through its branches ... and dreaming of what he will find on the other side. When he finally breaks through, he finds an enchanted castle with all of its occupants asleep ... as if under a spell. He is especially careful not to disturb the princess, for he senses that the source of the dream he has entered is this sleeping beauty.
