大野狼与七只小羊 The Wolf and the Seven Young Kids
Not long after, Mother Goat and her son left the house to take a stroll in the garden.
Suddenly, she heard a low wheezing sound: someone was snoring heavily. It was the greedy wolf. His feast of kids had been too much for him and he was fast asleep, dead to the world.
In a flash, Mother Goat had a brainwave. She said to her son: “Run and fetch me a needle and thread and a pair of scissors!”
With these, she swiftly slit open the wolf’s stomach. As she had hoped, the ravenous brute had swallowed every kid whole. There they were all still alive, alive inside his tummy. One by one, out they popped from the wolf’s tummy.
“Hurry! Hurry! Not a sound! We must get away before he wakens up! Wait! Fetch me a heap of stones!”
And so they filled the wolf’s stomach with stones and stitched it up again. The wolf woke later with a raging thirst.
“What a heavy tummy I have!” he said. “I’ve eaten too much! All these kids!”
But when he went down the river to drink, his tummy full of stones tipped him over and he fell into the water. The weight took him straight to the bottom, and the goat and her kids shrieked with joy as he sank.
The wicked wolf was dead and the kids trotted home happily with Mother.
红鞋 The Red Shoes
A mysterious soldier appears and makes strange remarks about what beautiful dancing shoes Karen has.
Soon after, Karen begins to dance and she can’t stop. The shoes take over; she cannot control them and they are stuck to her feet. The shoes continue to dance, through fields and meadows, rain or shine, night and day, and through brambles and briars that tear at Karen’s limbs. She can’t even attend her adoptive mother’s funeral.
An angel appears to her, bearing a sword, and condemns her to dance even after she dies, as a warning to vain children everywhere. Karen begs for mercy but the red shoes take her away before she hears the angel’s reply. Karen finds an executioner and asks him to chop off her feet. He does so but the shoes continue to dance, now with Karen’s amputated feet inside them.
The executioner gives her a pair of wooden feet and crutches, and teaches her the criminals’ psalm. Thinking that she has suffered enough for the red shoes, Karen decides to go to church in order for the people to see her. However her amputated feet, still in the red shoes, dance before her, barring the way. The following Sunday she tries again, thinking of herself at least as good as the others in church, but again the dancing red shoes bar the way.
奇幻森林历险记 Hansel and Gretel
She prepares the oven for Hansel, but decides she is hungry enough to eat Gretel, too. She coaxes Gretel to the open oven and prods her to lean over in front of it to see if the fire is hot enough.
Gretel, sensing the witch’s intent, pretends she does not understand what she means.
Infuriated, the witch demonstrates, and Gretel instantly shoves the witch into the oven, slams and bolts the door shut, leaving “The ungodly witch to be burned to ashes“, the witch screaming in pain until she dies.
he Prince, who was now madly in love with her, picked up her slipper and said to his ministers, “Go and search everywhere for the girl whose foot this slipper fits. I will never be content until I find her!” So the ministers tried the slipper on the foot of all the girls… and on Cinderella’s foot as well… Surprise! The slipper fit her perfectly.

When she is hesitant to accept it, the Queen cuts the apple in half, eats the white part and gives the poisoned red part to Snow White.
