Example of text:-
'One very cold winter, a baby girly was born to a king, who called her Snow White. Her face was white as snow, her hair was dark as night, and her lips were red as blood. Although he was very happy with his daughter, the king was also sad, because the queen had just died. Snow White grew from a little baby into the most beautiful girl. After a year, the king married again. His new queen was beautiful, but she was also very proud. She had a magic mirror that could actually talk! One day, the queen stood in front of her mirror. "Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?" she asked. "You, O Queen, are beautiful," the mirror answered. "But Snow White is even more lovely."...........'
Hmmm - not the response the vain step-mother is expecting to hear, so she sets out on a mission to reinstate herself. She orders a huntsman to kill Snow White and bring back her heart as proof, but the kindly huntsman lets the princess go and she disappears into the woods........happening upon the cottage of the seven dwarves......who make her very welcome. However, the magic mirror can't lie and when the enraged Queen finds out she is still second best, she sets out with a poisoned apple to do the job herself! Her next appointment with the mirror results in the response:-
"Now that you've got rid of Snow White, you are back at Number One!
But not for long, as it turns out!
