Snow White by Josephine Poole


Snow White by Josephine Poole

Mirror, mirror on the wall, Who is the fairest of us all?' the mirror answered, 'Queen, you are full fair, 'tis true, But Snow White is fairer than you.' When the wicked queen orders a huntsman to take Snow White into the forest, kill her and bring back her heart as proof, he is so taken by her beauty that he spares her. Venturing into the depths of the forest, Snow White finds a little house belonging to a family of dwarves who take her in. However, when the queen discovers that Snow White is still alive she is furious and again takes up her mission to do away with fairest maiden in the land. This is a fresh and enchanting retelling of a classic children's story with breath-taking illustrations.
