    QUÉ La madre del príncipe estaba loco. ¿Podemos hablar de que la hija de la reina y el rey se llamaba Aurora? entonces la Aurora mejor conocida como la Bella Durmiente de Disney sobrevivió a que su abuela ogro se la comiera porque llegó su padre de repente y la salvó. Me en-can-tó.

When the princess turns fifteen the wicked fairy pricks her finger and puts her and everyone else into the castle asleep. The spell can only be broken if the prince kisses the princess. After many years, the prince kisses her and everyone including the princess awoke. They then fell in love and got married and lived happily ever after. I like this story as it is one of my favourite fairy tales from my childhood, having read it so many times and watched the film too. It is good the way they have an evil character in the book and as a child you are left in suspense as to whether the princess will awake or not and then she does and they live happily ever after. This book is again suitable for early year’s three to seven as it easy to read, easy to tell and an enjoyable read for children. Again another short story that captures their attention. This fairy tale could be read to an early year’s class at story time as it is short and easily told. It could also be used for guided reading, the children could take turns reading different parts or acting as different characters. Also it could be used for independent reading or to improve knowledge retrieval skills by asking the children questions at the end of the story.

    Rating 4 Golden Stars Before Reading: To be honest I was not looking forward to reading this at all. It was part of my AP English project where I had to analyze three different versions of Sleeping Beauty. I thought this version would be the same as the Disney version that I grew up knowing.I was very wrong... After Reading:Charles Perrault's version of Sleeping Beauty is translated from French so each version varies slightly.

After Reading:Charles Perrault's version of Sleeping Beauty is translated from French so each version varies slightly. However, one can note that his version is MUCH different than Disney's version. Well for one this version in my opinion is not meant for children. The first part of the story is the same as Disney's...you have the princess being cursed by an evil fairy,she falls into the curse, she gets saved...but there's a whole second part of the story that no one knows since most of us only know the Disney version which is meant to entertain young children. The second part involves the King's wife being a cannibal and wanting to eat both Sleeping beauty's kids and her. Yeah you heard me right this version involves cannibalism. The thing is this version isn't even as disturbing as Basile's version called "Sun,Moon,and Talia" which involves the protagonist getting raped while unconscious and only waking up one when of her twins pull out the spindle from her body. Weird! I know. Note:These versions plus other versions of fairy tales can be found online.

    As usual, a really lovely fairytale =). I was very surprised by this story, really. I grew up with the Disney version, but my surprise was huge when I realized that the end of the movie was only half the book. I loved the details of the children of Sleeping Beauty and Prince, and the adventures they had when they moved into the realm of the prince. In short, a wonder that everyone should read.

    I'd forgotten how violent Grimms fairy tales are. A formerly "OK" queen suddenly turns "ogre-ish" while her son, the king, goes away to fight a war. So in her ogre-ish state, she orders her head chef to cook her grandchildren so she can eat them. Having done with them, she orders a nice BBQ'd daughter-in-law for desert. Not a bedtime story I'd like to read to my children.

    I don't get it: why do people insist reading this horrible stories to the children. Probably it is just a habit: they were read to them and they do the ritual all over without really caring for the values they are teaching. Rape? Rape is good if you are doing it with a clean heart. And it's even better when you are a prince. Reminds me of coercive rape to cure lesbianism. And killing? Killing is something that happens. How about the necromantic aspects of christianity? Exhibiting the body. That's I don't get it: why do people insist reading this horrible stories to the children.

Exhibiting the body. That's nice. You never know how the dead will rise. A year in a coma in a medical institution and recovery is almost impossible. Anyway, everything is excusable as long as you teach your children the basic values: the woman should have the good looks or die a servant. The man should work to keep the beautiful woman doing. Doing what? I don't know. The stories of this kind need to invent television in order to satisfy women who are dumb, illiterate, and generally ignorant of anything but beauty and submission.

    Dios mío, que versión más diferente a la de Disney, aunque me gustó mucho mas esta historia. A penas leí lo de las hadas me quede en cero, y solo con saber que le sucede a la princesa después me quede mucho peor. El final me encantó, me pareció romántico y entretenido. Le pongo 4/5 estrellas porque quería que dijeran los nombres de los personajes y también quería saber qué sucedió con la bruja :(
