“Mirror, mirror on the wall, Who is the fairest of us all?” repeatedly asks the Queen, Snow White’s stepmother. She always gets the answer she wants, until Snow White grows up, and the mirror must truthfully answer, “Snow White.” At the news, the Queen turns yellow and green with envy and commands the huntsman to kill Snow White and bring her “lung and liver as a token.” Thus begins another enchanting fairy tale from the Brothers Grimm!
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is one the most beautiful and memorable fairy tales ever written. The Brothers Grimm are among the most well-known storytellers of European folk tales, and their work popularized such stories as “Cinderella”, “The Frog Prince” and “Hansel and Gretel”.
The popularity of the Grimms’ collected folk tales endured well beyond their lifetimes. The tales are available in more than 100 translations and have been adapted to popular Disney films such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Sleeping Beauty, and Cinderella.
