Also it has interesting things to say about the way older women are treated both in fairy tales and real life.

Lots of the variations of sleeping beauty start with "and there were thirteen fairies but they could only invite twelve because they only had twelve gold plates" what is that about? Is it some weird comment on class position - that they couldn't afford another gold plate or is it a half forgotten throwback to christian superstition, having thirteen guests at a meal is unlucky?
