The three spinners
This is the story of a young girl who didn't want to spin. Her mother beats her and when the Queen asks why, tells her that Maria will not stop spinning.The Queen takes Maria to her castle and promises her son's hand in marriage when she has spun all the straw in the castle. Three Fairies appear and agree to help Maria if she will invite them to her wedding and introduce them as her Aunts. At the wedding everyone is shocked at the appearance of the three "aunts." One has an enlarged lip, the second a huge thumb, the third an enormous foot, all from spinning straw...all the time. The Prince and the Queen tell Maria she shall never spin again so that she might always be beautiful.
