白雪公主和七个小矮人 Snow White and the seven dwarves
Once upon a time, in a land far away, a king and queen lived in a beautiful castle. They had everything they wanted, except a child of their own. One night, the queen was sitting by her window. She was watching the snow fall outside. She looked up and saw a wishing star（许愿星）. Star light, star bright, wishing star I see tonight, I wish I may, I wish I might have the wish I wish tonight. I wish I had a little girl with skin as white as snow, with cheeks（面颊） as red as roses, and with hair as black as night.
The next year, the queen got her wish. She had a lovely little daughter. Her name was Snow White. The king and queen were very happy. Everyone in the kingdom loved Princess Snow White.
What a beautiful little baby girl. Her skin is as white as snow. Her cheeks are as red as roses. Her hair is as black as night, with pretty curls（卷发）. She’s adorable（可爱的）.
Soon after Snow White was born, the good queen died. The king married a new queen. The new queen was very beautiful, but she was also very proud. She wanted to be the most beautiful woman in the kingdom. The queen had a magic mirror that answered any question she asked. Every day, she asked the mirror the same question.
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest（最美的） of them all?
You are, my Queen.
Are you sure?
Of course, my queen .You know I always tell the truth.
Thank you, mirror. I’m very happy now.
Many years passed, and Snow White grew to be a beautiful young woman.
Here comes the princess Snow White. Look at her hair. It’s so long and thick.
Yes, and her eyes are always bright and happy. She smiles at everyone she meets.
She is as graceful（优雅的） as a dancer. And she is so kind and gentle.
Everyone loves her.
But the queen did not love Snow White. She was jealous（妒嫉） of the princess’ beauty.
Then one day.
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?
Snow White is the fairest, my queen.
What?! Never! I am the fairest!
I’m sorry, but I always tell the truth. You are very beautiful, but Snow White is more beautiful than you are.
What can I do? I know. If I make Snow White work hard, then she will lose her beauty. And I will be the fairest of them all.
The queen called for Snow White.
Snow White, you are growing up（长大）. Your days of playing are over. Now you must work in the kitchen. First, you will carry buckets（水桶） of water from the well（水井）. Then, you will cook all our meals. And then, you will wash all the dishes and scrub（擦洗） all the pots and pans（坛坛罐罐）.
All that work? Every day?
Yes, every day. Now go to the kitchen and get started.
Snow White worked very hard all day long. She did everything the queen told her to do .But the more Snow White worked, the more beautiful she became.
Mirror, mirror, on the wall. Who’s the fairest of them all?
Snow White is the fairest, my queen.
Still? But I make her do all that hard work.
She is still more beautiful than you are.
Then I’ll make her work harder.
The queen called for Snow White again.
No more kitchen work for you.
Hooray! Thank you.
Now you must work in the castle. First you will scrub（擦洗） all the floors in the castle. Then you will wash everyone’s clothes. Then, you will clean all my jewelry（首饰）.
Snow White worked very hard in the castle. But the more Snow White worked, the more beautiful she became. The queen was very angry. Finally, she had another ides. She called a huntsman（猎人）.
Huntsman, take Snow White into the forest and kill her.
Kill Snow White? But she is so kind and gentle.
If you don’t kill her, then I will kill you. When you are done, bring me her heart. Then I will know that she is dead.
I hate to do it, but I will. I must obey（服从） the queen.
That afternoon, the huntsman took Snow White into the forest. Snow White loved the tall trees and pretty flowers. She chased（追逐） butterflies and sang with the birds in the trees. She looked so happy. The huntsman did not want to kill her.
Princess, the queen told me to kill you today, but I can’t do it.
Why does the queen want to kill me? I don’t understand.
She hates you because of your beauty. Please, princess, run away and never come back.
Then you will be safe.
I don’t know where to go. But I will run away from the castle. Thank you for saving my life. Good bye.
The huntsman killed a wild pig（野猪）. He took its heart to the queen. The queen thought it was Snow White’s heart. Now she thought that she was the most beautiful in the land.
Once there was a Queen. She was sitting at the window. There was snow outside in the garden-snow on the hill and in the lane, snow on the hunts and on the trees: all things were white with snow.
The Queen was making a coat for a little child. She said, "I want my child to be white as this cloth, white as the snow. And I shall call her Snow-white."
Some days after that the Queen had a child. The child was white as snow. The Queen called her Snow-white.
But the Queen was very ill, and after some days she died. Snow-white lived, and was a very happy and beautiful child.
One year after that, the King married another Queen. The new Queen was very beautiful; but she was not a good woman.
A wizard had given this Queen a glass. The glass could speak. It was on the wall in the Queen's room. Every day the queen looked in the glass to see how beautiful she was. As she looked in the glass, she asked: "Tell me, glass upon the wall, who is most beautiful of all?" And the glass spoke and said: "The Queen is most beautiful of all."
Year went by. Snow-white grew up and became a little girl. every day the Queen looked in the glass and said, "Tell me, glass upon the wall, who is most beautiful of all?" And the glass said, "Snow-white is most beautiful of all."
When the Queen heard this, she was very angry. She said, "Snow-white is not more beautiful than I am. There is no one who is more beautiful than I am."
Then the Queen sat on her bed and cried.
After one hour the Queen went out of her room. She called one of the servants, and said, "Take Snow-white into the forest and kill her."
The servant took Snow-white to the forest, but he did not kill her, because she was so beautiful and so good. He said, "I shall not kill you; but do not go to the King's house, because the Queen is angry and she will see you. If the Queen sees you, she will make some other man kill you. Wait here in the forest; some friends will help you." Then he went away.
Poor Snow-white sat at the foot of a tree and cried. Then she saw that night was coming. She said, "I will not cry. I will find some house where I can sleep tonight. I cannot wait here: the bears will eat me."
She went far into the forest. Then she saw a little hut. She opened the door of the hut, and went in. In the hut she saw seven little beds. There was a table, and on the table there were seven little loaves and seven little glasses. She ate one of the loaves. Then she said, "I want some water to drink." So she drank some water out of one of the glasses. Then she fell asleep on one of the seven little beds.
The hut was the home of seven Little Men. When it was night, the seven Little Men came to the hut. Each Little Man had a big beard, and a little blue coat. Each Little Man came into the hut, and took his little lamp. Then each Little Man sat down, and ate his little loaf, and drank his little glass of water.
But one Little Man said, "Someone has eaten my little loaf." And another Little Man said, "Someone has drunk my little glass of water." Then the seven Little Men went to bed, but one Little Man said, "Someone is sleeping on my little bed." All the seven Little Men came to look at Snow-white as she slept on the Little Men's bed. They said, "She is very beautiful."
Snow-white awoke, and saw the seven Little Men with their big beards standing near her bed. She was afraid. The Little men said, "Do not be afraid. We are your friends. Tell us how you came here." Snow-white said, "I will tell you." Then she told them her story.
They said, "Do not be afraid. Live here with us. But see that the door shut when we are not in the house with you. Do not go out. If you go out, the bad Queen will find you. Then she will know that you are not dead, and will tell someone to kill you." So Snow-white lived in the hut with the seven Little Men.
After some days Snow-white went into the garden. One of the Queen's servants was going through the forest, and he saw her. He went and told the Queen, "Snow-white is in a hut in the forest." The Queen was very angry when she heard that Snow-white was not dead.
The Queen took an apple. She made a hole in the red side of the apple, and put some powder into the hole. Then she put on old clothes and went to the hut. She called, "Is any one there?" Snow-white opened the door, and came out to her. The Queen said, "I have some pretty apples. Eat one of my pretty apples." Snow-white took the apple and said, "Is it good?" The Queen said, "See, I will eat this white side of the apple; you eat the red side. Then you will know that it is good."
Snow-white ate the red side of the apple. When the powder was in her mouth, she fell down dead. The Queen went back to her house. She went into her room. she looked into the glass and said, "Tell me, glass upon the wall, who is most beautiful of all?" The glass said, "The Queen is most beautiful of all." Then the Queen know that Snow-white was dead.
The Little Men came back to the hut. When they saw that Snow-white was dead, the poor Little Men cried. Then they put Snow-white in a box made of glass. They took the glass box to a hill and put it there, and said, "Everyone who goes by will see how beautiful she was." Then each Little Man put one white flower on the box, and they went away.
Just as they were going away, a Prince came by. He saw the glass box and said, "What is that?" Then he saw Snow-white in the box. He said, "She was very beautiful: but do not put her there. There is a hall in the garden of my father's house. It is all made of white stone. We will take the glass box and put it in the hall of beautiful white stone."
The Little Men said, "Take her." Then the Prince told his servants to take up the box. They took up the box. Just then one of the servants fell down. The box fell, and Snow-white fell with the box. The bit of apple fell out of her mouth: she awoke, and sat up, and said, "Where am I?"
The Prince said, "You are with me. I never saw anyone as beautiful as you. Come with me and be my Queen."
The Prince married Snow-white, and she became his Queen.
A man went and told this to the bad Queen. When she heard it she was so angry that she fell down dead.
Snow-white lived and was very happy ever after. And the Little Men came to see her every year.
The next morning, the dwarves left for work.
Take good care of our house, Snow White.
We will be home at sundown.
I will cook a roast with potatoes for dinner.
And your clothes will be all clean. Good bye.
As soon as the dwarves were gone, the queen walked to the door and knocked. Snow White answered the door. She did not recognize the queen. She only saw a young girl.
(girl’s voice) Good morning, ma’am. I am selling fine combs for pretty ladies. Do you want to buy one?
I’m sorry, but I don’t need a comb.
Oh please, ma’am. Please try my combs. They are very strong. Your hair is so thick and beautiful. You should have a good comb.
Alright, I’ll try one.
Snow White took the queen’s comb and began to comb her hair. When the comb touched her head, her hair began to move. Her hair wrapped around her neck and began to tighten. Snow White couldn’t breathe. She couldn’t even call for help.
Die, Snow White! Now I will be the fairest.
The queen laughed and laughed. Then she went back to the castle.
Luckily, one of the dwarves forgot his lunch. He ran back to the house to get it. When he got there, he saw Snow White with the comb in her hair. Her hair was wrapping tighter and tighter around her neck. The dwarf grabbed the comb and threw it to the ground. The comb broke into pieces.
The spell was broken, and Snow White could breathe again.
Snow White! Snow White! What happened?
A girl was selling combs. I tried one, and my hair wrapped around my neck. The girl ran away, but I heard her laugh. It was the queen’s laugh. The girl was the queen in disguise.
The queen found you here. You are in great danger, Snow White. From now on, you must never take anything from a stranger. And never let any strangers into the house. We will keep you safe, but we must be very careful.
The queen returned to the castle, she went to her magic mirror.
Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?
Snow White is the fairest, my queen. She is still alive in the forest. One of the dwarves saved her life.
No, no, no! I can’t use another comb. Snow White will know that it is a trick. I must make her trust me. But how? Ah-ha! I know what to do.
The queen made another magic potion and drank it. Now she looked like a very old woman. Then she took an apple. Half of the apple was green, and half of the apple was red. She did the red half of the apple into a powerful poison.
Snow White will eat this poisoned apple and she will die. Then I will be the fairest in the land.
The next morning, the dwarves left for work.
Remember, Snow White, don’t let any strangers into the house. It might be the queen in disguise. And don’t take anything from strangers. It might be another trick.
I will remember. I’ll be very careful.
That afternoon, there was a knock at the door.
Snow White went to the window to see who it was. She saw an old woman with a basket of apples. She did not know it was the queen again.
(old woman’s voice) Hello, young lady. I am selling apples. Do you want to buy some nice fresh apples?
I’m sorry. But I’m not allowed to take anything from strangers.
You are a good girl. I’ll give you half an apple for free. I’ll eat the other half. Then you will know it is safe.
The old woman cut the apple in half. She ate the good half and gave the poisoned half to Snow White. Snow White thought it was safe, so she ate her half. After one bite, she fell down to the floor.
The queen laughed and laughed.
Now I am the fairest. Good bye, Snow White. Good bye forever.
That night, the seven dwarves came home. They found Snow White and the poisoned apple on the floor.
Oh no! Snow White, wake up! Wake up!
Is she dead?
I don’t know. She is not breathing. But her skin is still warm, and her cheeks are still red.
The queen did this. The apple was poisoned. What will we do?
Let’s make a glass coffin for her. We will put it on the hill. There we can watch her.
We can take turns watching her each day. If she wakes up, we will see it.
The dwarves built a glass coffin for Snow White, and put it on a hill near their house.
Form that day on, only six of the dwarves went to dig for gold and jewels in the hills. One dwarf stood guard by Snow White’s coffin every day. A long time passed, and Snow White never moved.
