The story of Sleeping Beauty has been around for a little while. The earliest version, (that I could find) was Perceforest, dating somewhere in the 1300s-1400s. So, like a lot of fairy tales, it has lots of different versions and was at first passed down orally. The famous fairy tale writer, Charles Perrault wrote a version in 1697. Here I have written a very, very short version of Sleeping Beauty.
