The Lovereading4Kids comment
Interest Age 8-12 Reading Age 8+ Snow White’s wickedest stepmother is one of the darkest characters in fiction and here she is shown in the very blackest light of all. In a savagely witty contemporary voice, the wicked stepmother tells her own story including why she so hates the mirror and why she is determined to see the back of Snow White! Kaye Umansky is very funny!
Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers of 8+
Mairi Kidd, Barrington Stoke MD says.....We’re delighted to publish Kaye’s hilarious spins on these two well-loved Grimm tales during the Grimms’ 250th anniversary year. Humour is a brilliant way to hook kids into books, and both of these reboots are laugh-out-loud funny.'

The Queen's Tale by Kaye Umansky
Hilarious re-telling of Snow White - from the evil stepmother's point of view. The Queen is fed up with Snow White. She's so sickeningly soppy and trilling and she turns her father the King into a gibbering fool. So when a run-of-the-mill magic mirror tells the Queen that Snow White is more beautiful than she is, Snow White has got to go! Laugh-out-loud comedy from a hugely popular author.
