Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Snow White and the Seven DwarfsShort tale: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Once upon a time, there was a beautiful princess named Snow White. She was good, gentle and a friend to all the little animals.

One day she met a handsome prince. While they were singing a love song together, Snow White’s wicked stepmother watched them from afar.

Although the stepmother was the queen, she was very vain, and envied Snow White’s beauty.

So envious was she that she ordered a huntsman to kill the young princess.

But the huntsman could not harm Snow White. So he told her to go away, and never let the queen find her.

Snow White obeyed and went into the forest. After running scared and aimlessly, she found a hut.

She knocked on the door, but no one opened it. She slowly went inside…

The inside of the cabin was a mess! But with the help of her forest friends, Snow White cleaned up the whole interior in no time.

“Maybe they’ll let her live here,” said Snow White.

Upstairs, Snow White found seven beds. They were so small she thought they were children’s beds.

Tired from all the cleaning, Snow White yawned and fell asleep in the beds.

Meanwhile, the Seven Dwarfs were on their way home after a long day’s work in a jewelry mine.

They were anxious to get to their cabin in the forest.

The Seven Dwarfs were surprised to find the princess at home!

When Snow White woke up, she met the Seven Dwarfs: Doc, Grumpy, Sneezy, Sleepy, Shy, Clumsy, Clumsy and Happy.

The Dwarfs wanted to protect the princess from the evil queen, so they invited Snow White to live with them.

To celebrate, everyone sang and danced that night.

At the castle, the queen learned that Snow White was still alive.

Furious, she made a magic potion to change her appearance. Her plan was to trick the princess.

The next day, after the dwarfs had gone to work, the queen, disguised as an old woman, offered Snow White a very appetizing red apple.

Snow White bit into the apple – and fell asleep. The queen poisoned her.

When the dwarfs returned from work, they chased the queen to the top of a mountain in the middle of a storm.

Suddenly, lightning struck the mountain. The queen fell down and no one saw her again.

But Snow White was still asleep. The Seven Dwarfs watched over her day and night, hoping she would wake up.

Finally, Snow White’s Prince Charming arrived. He had been looking for the beautiful princess with whom he had sung in the castle.

The prince woke Snow White with the first kiss of love. That broke the spell!

Snow White and the prince returned to the kingdom and lived happily ever after.
