The Sleeping Beauty
Once upon a time there lived a King and Queen who had a little baby-daughter.
They asked all the fairies in the kingdom to the christening, but unfortunately forgot to invite one of them, because it happened that unfortunately there were thirteen fairies, and the King had only twelve gold plates for the feast. So he was obliged to pretend he had forgotten the thirteenth fairy.The twelve fairies came to the christening and they each brought a magic gift to the infant Princess.One gave her beauty, another health and happiness, another cleverness, another sweet temper and a kind heart, and so on until it came to the twelfth fairy.
