** spoiler alert ** A funny twist on the Sleeping Beauty story that both boys and girls will like. An evil fairy gives the newborn princess a curse that on her sixteenth birthday she will be run over by a pie wagon and die. A hard of hearing fairy tries to lessen the curse by saying that she will turn into a sleeping dragon instead of dying and she will be awakened by a quince. Lots of princes and ordinary men try different things with quinces to wake her up but nothing seems to help. Eventually a fellow without a quince does something to wake her.
