The Story of Snow WhiteOnce upon a time there lived a lovely princess with fair skin and blue eyes. She was so fair that she was named Snow White. Her mother died when Snow White was a baby and her father married again. This queen was very pretty but she was also very cruel. Mirror on the wall! Who is the fairest of them all?

The story with pictures.
But this queen died; and the king soon married another wife, who was very beautiful, but so proud that she could not bear to think that any one could be more beautiful than her. She had a magical looking-glass, to which she used to go and gaze upon herself in it, and say—. Then the glass one day answered queen, when she went to consult it as usual—. Then poor Snow-White wandered along through the wood in great fear; and the wild beasts roared around, but none did her any harm. In the evening she came to a little cottage, and went in there to rest, for her weary feet would carry her no further. Everything was spruce and neat in the cottage: on the table was spread a white cloth, and there were seven little plates with seven little loaves and seven little glasses with wine in them; and knives and forks laid in order, and by the wall stood seven little beds.
Long ago, in a faraway place, there lived a lovely princess named Snow White. Her hair was black as coal, her lips red as rose, and her skin as white as snow. Snow White's stepmother, the Queen, was very cruel. She hated anyone who was more beautiful than she. The Queen treated Snow White like a servant.
