A new princess is born to King Stefan and his Queen, and the entire kingdom rejoices! Three good fairies, Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather, arrive to bestow gifts of magic on the beautiful child, Aurora. When the evil fairy Maleficent puts a curse on the princess, the good fairies must do everything in their power to protect her.
Aurora falls under Maleficent’s spell on her sixteenth birthday, when she pricks her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and falls into a deep sleep. The only thing that will save her is a kiss from her one truce love. Is Prince Phillip strong enough to defeat the evil spell?
In these hardcover books, the stories children love are retold in a lively style just right for family sharing. Bring the timeless appeal of Disney storytelling home and relive the magic again and again.
