Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
Our story is set a long time ago, in a magical kingdom, which is ruled by Snow White’s stepmother, a wicked and vain queen.
The queen owns a magical mirror, which is the source of all her power. Every day she asks the mirror “Mirror, Mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?’’ and always the mirror responds that she is the fairest in the land.
However, the Princess Snow White is growing up and becoming more beautiful each day until one morning, the mirror responds that the Princess Snow White is the fairest in all the kingdom.
And so, eaten up by jealousy and rage, the Queen vows to kill Snow White. She orders the Princess be taken into the forest and killed, but Snow White escapes and is lost deep inside the forest. It is there that she meets the Seven Dwarfs. They give her shelter and she ends up living in their cottage, happy and safe, although dreaming of a Prince that she met many years ago.
The peace is broken, when the Queen discovers Snow White is still alive and so sets out to kill her once and for all. She concocts a spell to create a poisoned apple, and disguised as an old lady, she pays a visit to the Dwarfs’ cottage and offers Snow White the apple. Upon taking a bite, Snow White falls to the ground, seemingly dead.
However, as in all good fairy tales, good finds a way to triumph over evil. The spell that has claimed Snow White can be broken by love’s first kiss. And so, when the Prince finds and kisses her, she awakens to great celebration!
