Beschreibung

A wise and beautiful queen has a daughter, but sadly dies soon afterwards. The king remarries but the stepmother is a cruel and vain woman. Snow White, so called because of her beauty, is soon lovelier than her stepmother. But the stepmother cannot accept a rival and orders that Snow White be taken from the palace and killed.

Managing to escape with her life, Snow White finds a cottage in the forest and ends up living with seven very unlikely housemates, seven dwarfs! Unfortunately the wicked stepmother has a talking mirror, which tells her that Snow White is still alive and still the most beautiful girl in the land.

The stepmother is furious and forms deadly plans to get rid of Snow White. But the seven dwarfs may have something to say about that!

In this new adaptation of the classic fairy tale, meet the seven dwarfs, Chief, Giggler, Dreamer, Echo and the remaining three, all named Hush! Will Snow White manage to avoid the evil machinations of her stepmother and how will the seven dwarfs save her?

Snow was falling gently, tiny white feathers dropping silently out of a blue sky and powdering the ground. A wise and good queen sat by a window, and played on an ebony lute. Staring dreamily at the snow as if lost in its loveliness, she accidentally cut her finger on a string and three drops of blood fell to the ground, creating a wonderful contrast with the white blanket on which they now lay:

"I would so like to have a child, as white as snow, with a complexion beautiful like a rose and

  • (4/5)
    Chihiro's art is simple, elegant and effective. I enjoyed this one for the reason that it was different from the highly rendered art usually accompanying fairy tale picture books. It was also refreshing to se a Western story done in Japanese style art, adding a universality to Snow Whites journey. I am also a sucker for pretty watercolors.(Review and rating are of the art, not story, the story is not altered from the Grimm version.)

    Watch out. The end to the original version is pretty gruesome.

    This version of Snow White is one of the ones I had never been exposed to. I thought that it had an intresting twist. I never knew that some of the events had happened. Snow White was born beautiful. Her step mother was very jealous of her. She sent her to the forest and thought this would kill her. After hearing that she was still alive she tried multiple times to be rid of Snow White and then the last time she thought she was gone for good, but little known a new twist was about to come over Snow White.I thought that this version of Snow White related to me,because after multiple times of failure she ends up living happily ever after. This is a quality that i am trying to work though in my life.As a classroom extension I am going to have my students compare this version to other versions of Snow White. Another is going to have the students write an alternate ending to this traditional tale.

    Summary: Snow White’s wicked step mother attempts to kill her so that she can be the most beautiful woman in the kingdom. The Queen has her huntsman take Snow White out into the woods to kill, he is unable to and lets her go. He tries to trick the queen into thinking he had killed Snow White by presenting her with a pigs heart. In the mean time Snow White stumbles upon this tiny cottage where the seven dwarves live. She begs and pleads to let her live with them. When the Queen finds out that Snow White is still alive she sets out to kill Snow White herself. Personal Reaction: I grew up reading the Grimm’s fairytales and even have a copy of their stories in German. This story in particular has always been a favorite of mine. I love that the moral of the story is that jealousy will get you no where. Classroom Extension:1) Group the students and have them act out their favorite scenes.2) With older students, have them write a comparison essay between the Grimm version and the Disney version
