Snow White and Rose Red
by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm
Age Range: 6-8
The best-known version of this classic German fairy tale (Schneeweißchen und Rosenrot) is the one collected by the Brothers Grimm and is brought to life in this new 2010 version by the beautiful illustrations from Russian artist Anastasiya Archipova.
Snow White and Rose Red live in an isolated cottage in the middle of the forest with their widowed mother.
One wintry night there is a knock at the door and they discover a bear standing in the doorway. Invited in to warm himself by the fire, he continues to visit them every evening throughout the winter; when spring arrives, the bear goes on his way. This is not the last that Snow White and Rose Red see of the bear, but in the meantime they have one or two adventures of their own!
Archipova’s vibrant illustrations bring this magical tale to life and allow the humour of the story to unfold. This is a large-format book, which is ideal for reading aloud.
