This sleeping beauty book is very similar to the Disney movie where I watched most of my fairytales growing up. There are some differences for instance instead of just sleeping beauty sleeping for 100 years the whole kingdom falls asleep too. Also, because this is a Grimm Brothers story it has a darker vibe and the illustrations also have a darker look. We see that many princes try to save the princess but many of them died this doesn't happen in the Disney version. In the end though the prince and the princess live happily ever after. The illustrations in this book had a darker look to it and it also seemed more renaissance style. ( )

This is the classic tale of sleeping beauty. She is 'pricked by a spindle' on her 16th birthday and is sleeping until a brave prince comes and kisses her which causes her to open her eyes and "live again". The story does have some twist and turns and obstacles that causes other princes to not be able to save her, but in the end she lives happily ever after. ( )

In this version of Sleeping Beauty it is about a girl who has a curse on her after a woman in the land was not invited. This curse would occur on her 16th birthday. She is immobile and many princess cannot save her because of the numerous thorns in their way. Then one young brave man succeeds to free her when he gets past the thorns and frees her with a kiss and get married and they live happily ever after. I would use this book with a young readers to show what a fairy tale looks like and the components that make up a fairy tale. ( )

The Sleeping Beauty, whose name is Briar Rose, is about a girl who is subjected to a curse that leaves her an immobile state for a hundred years. At a ceremony, 13 wise women gathered to offer a blessing for the child as directed by the King and Queen. After not receiving an invitation, the twelfth wise woman deliver a curse upon her that comes to past at her 16th birthday. She, along with the king and queen and courtiers, falls victim to the curse. There were numerous attempts by many young men to free her of the spell but were unsuccessful at reaching her because of the dangerous ledge of thorns that surrounded the palace. Until one courageous young noble decides to attempt to free her and succeeds by going pass the thorns (which turns into flowers) and releases her from the curse with a kiss. They both go on and get married and lives a happy life. ( )
