Bibliographic Information: Mahlon F. Craft, “Sleeping Beauty”, Illustrated by Kinuko Y. Craft, Published by SeaStar Books, ©2002, 29 pages
Genre: Folktales, myth, fables and legends
Summary: The king and queen wanted a child but went so long without any luck until one day a frog who the queen had sung to, told her that she would have a daughter in twelve months’ time. The king invites everyone to a party to celebrate the birth of his daughter Aurora. He inquires about the fairies and finds that there are thirteen but one hasn’t been seen for a long time. So the king just invites the twelve to the party. The thirteenth fairy shows up mad that they had not tried to find her and gives Aurora the gift of prinking her finger on a spindle on her sixteenth birthday and dying. The twelfth fairy says she cannot stop the gift but alter it to being asleep for hundred years. So this happens and everyone in the kingdom falls asleep. The fairy covers the kingdom in briar roses. Many princes tried at first to make it to the tower but none succeeded. One day a very kind hearted prince determined that he is going to make it to the tower. He starts off and the briars just fall away. He sees that everyone is asleep though they look dead. He finds the princess and is taken by her beauty and kisses her. They fall in love and live happily ever after.
Tags: Love, Romance, Never leave anybody out
My Response: I’ve never heard sleeping beauty this way before. I mean the structure of the story yes but not the briar rose prince and that it took 100 years before she was awoken. I do like this version of the story though.

This is a traditional Sleeping Beauty story, but in this one Sleeping Beauty's parents leave the castle after Sleeping Beauty falls asleep and the fairy puts her servants to sleep "so she'll have someone to serve her when she wakes up." Slightly unfair, perhaps... ( )
