2 Once upon a time there was a king who lived in a far away castle The King’s wife had just had a new baby and everyone in the castle was celebrating.The King had invited many people to join the celebration.
3 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.
4 Unfortunately, the celebrations were about to come to an end. She was so angry that she put a curse on the Princess.The King had forgotten to invite one of the older fairies and she burst into the castle in great anger.“On her sixteenth birthday she will prick her finger and die!”
5 Then the old evil fairy disappeared. 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.But he didn’t know what else to do.
6 At that moment, one of the kind fairies stepped forward. The Princess would not die. If anything happened the Princess, and everyone in the castle, would fall into a deep sleep.Although she could not break the curse she was able to change it.A kiss would later wake up the Princess and all in the castle.
7 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.
