The Sleeping Beauty

Stories that charm, appeal and make you dream about a better life, in which good always triumphs over evil. They are ideal to understand that, although not everything in life is beautiful, goodness and honesty always come out on top. Stories that our ancestors loved, and for sure they will captivate us, too.
