Briar Rose, also known as "Sleeping Beauty," is a classic fairy tale recorded by the Brothers Grimm in their collection of folktales. The story centers around a beautiful princess named Briar Rose, who is cursed by a wicked fairy to fall into a deep sleep on her 16th birthday. The curse is eventually broken by a prince, who awakens Briar Rose with a kiss and they live happily ever after.
The tale of Briar Rose is likely based on a number of older folktales and myths, and has been retold and adapted countless times over the years. In the version recorded by the Grimm Brothers, the curse is placed on Briar Rose by an evil fairy who is not invited to the princess's christening. The wicked fairy declares that on her 16th birthday, Briar Rose will prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and fall into a deep sleep. The curse is later modified by a good fairy, who reduces the length of the sleep and adds that a prince will eventually awaken Briar Rose with a kiss.
As the princess grows up, she is kept unaware of the curse, and on her 16th birthday, she discovers a spinning wheel and pricks her finger as the curse predicted. She immediately falls into a deep sleep, along with everyone else in the castle. A thick briar hedge grows up around the castle, protecting it from the outside world and keeping the princess and her subjects in a state of suspended animation.
Years pass, and a prince learns of the beautiful sleeping princess and the curse that has been placed upon her. He makes his way through the briar hedge and finds Briar Rose in her chamber, where he awakens her with a kiss. The curse is broken, and Briar Rose and the prince fall in love and marry.

They were colorful and had a fair amount of detail and things to look at like the cross-section castle scenes , but they just seemed kind of ordinary overall, and I didn't think the princess was that pretty, which seems kind of like a requirement when it comes to a character referred to as Sleeping Beauty.
