The story of Snow White is told here with simplicity and charm. After her wicked stepmother--jealous of Snow White's extraordinary beauty--expels her from the castle, Snow White encounters seven dwarfs, a poisoned apple, and finally a handsome prince! This version of the story is translated directly from the original and some of the details should be edited by a parent reader. However, the illustrations are absolutely beautiful. This book makes a beautiful addition to any library.
