2 Sleeping Beauty Story retold by Bev Evans

3 Once upon a time there was a king who lived in a far away castle The King had invited many people to join the celebration. The Kings wife had just had a new baby and everyone in the castle was celebrating.

4 Among the people celebrating were a group of fairies. The King had invited them so they could bless the new Princess with gifts. They gave the Princess the gifts of grace, beauty and friendliness.

5 The King had forgotten to invite one of the older fairies and she burst into the castle in great anger. She was so angry that she put a curse on the Princess. Unfortunately, the celebrations were about to come to an end. On her sixteenth birthday she will prick her finger and die!

6 The King and Queen were very upset. The King immediately banned the use of sharp objects from the castle and offered a reward for the capture of the old evil fairy. Then the old evil fairy disappeared. But he didnt know what else to do.

7 At that moment, one of the kind fairies stepped forward. Although she could not break the curse she was able to change it. The Princess would not die. If anything happened the Princess, and everyone in the castle, would fall into a deep sleep. A kiss would later wake up the Princess and all in the castle.

8 Although they were not sure, the King and Queen agreed with this idea and the fairy made cast her spell. And, all the while, the Princess carried on sleeping in her wooden crib.

9 .. Many years went by and nothing happened. The Princess was taking a walk inside the castle when she came across… Then, on the day of her sixteenth birthday, a strange thing happened. The Princess was nearly sixteen and loved to walk around the castle grounds.

10 The old woman was the evil fairy in disguise! She had magically entered the castle and was ready for her revenge! …an old woman with a spinning wheel. She handed the Princess something sharp. She knew what was going to happen.

11 The Princess pricked her finger. Soon, she was in a deep sleep on the floor. The evil fairy thought the Princess was dead and disappeared.

12 The kind fairy knew something had happened and rushed to the castle. She carefully lifted the Princess onto a beautiful bed as everyone else in the castle drifted off into a deep sleep.

13 No one came to castle for many years. The castle became covered in brambles and weeds. Then, one day, a handsome prince was riding near the castle. He asked a nearby farmer what had happened there.

14 The farmer told him the whole story. When the handsome prince heard about how a kiss could wake the Princess he decided to try and break the spell. He chopped through the weeds and brambles… …and entered the castle grounds.

15 The Prince started searching for the Princess. Eventually, he went to the tallest tower. The Prince climbed the stone steps to the top, opened the door… …and found the Princess
