Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs


Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
Once upon a time, in a great castle there lived a little girl named Snow White. She lived with her step mother. Her parents were death many years ago.
Though her stepmother was a wicked woman, she was very beautiful too, and the magic mirror told her this every day, whenever she asked it.
            "Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the loveliest lady in the land?" The reply was always; "You are, your Majesty," until the dreadful day when she heard it say, "Snow White is the loveliest in the land." The stepmother was furious and, wild with jealousy, began plotting to get rid of her rival.
One day, her step mother asked her maid to kill Snow White. Her step mother was jealous of her beauty. The maid couldn’t kill her. He brought Snow White to a jungle and released her.
Snow White was very sad. She felt hungry and tired.
Then she saw a very old hut. She knocked it but no one answered.
So she went inside and fell asleep.
Meanwhile, seven dwarfs were coming home from work. They went inside. They found Snow White sleeping. Then Snow White woke up. She saw the dwarfs. The dwarfs said,” What is your name?” Snow White answered,” I am Snow White”.
The dwarfs said,” If you wish, you may live here with us.” Snow White said,” Oh, could? Thank you.” Then Snow White told the dwarfs her whole story. Snow White and the seven dwarfs lived happily with them.
The next day the dwarfs went out to look for their meals. Then an old beggar knocked the door and gave her a red apple. She ate it at once. Suddenly she was unconscious.
 She was sleeping for long time. The dwarfs were very confused.
 Fortunately a handsome man came in. He saw Snow White and felt in love. He kissed her and…Snow White woke up.
