Snow White is a German fairy tale. It was probably told for centuries, but in 1812 the Brothers Grimm published a version they had collected in their Grimms' Fairy Tales.

The story has always been popular with readers and critics. It has been adapted to movies and television, most famously in the 1937 animated musical movie, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs by Walt Disney.

Story[edit | edit source]

Snow White is a beautiful princess. She is cast out by her jealous stepmother, the Queen. The princess finds a home in the forest with seven dwarfs who are very kind to her.

The Queen learns where she is living and poisons her. Snow White does not die but sleeps. She is awakened by a handsome prince. They marry and live happily ever after.
