Tuesday, August 11, 2009 - Alinda of the Loch is a short-novel that tells the tale of Sleeping Beauty's daughter. This is the first book by co-authors Oonagh Pope and Julie Brown, who happen to live across the globe from one another! Pope (Scotland) and Brown (US), are teachers who collaborated to create this modern fairy tale.

The daughter of Sleeping Beauty (Queen Aurora of Inverness-Shire) is asleep for hundreds of years and awakens in our time to discover what it takes to be a modern day "princess." A new sleeping beauty and her companion, the Loch Ness Monster, adapt to our world in this story for all ages.

Pope and Brown traveled around the world to create a new kind of fairy tale for all to enjoy. Pope is a primary school teacher in England while Brown is a college professor in Santa Barbara, California. Their combined experience created a book that interweaves a traditional fairy tale and contemporary influence. Parents, children, and even college students will find enjoyment in this tale of love, family, and self-empowerment.
