Synopsis

Snow White: A Sparkling Fairy Tale by Nicola Baxter

Once upon a time there was a beautiful princess who had skin as white as snow...In this delightful retelling of a well-loved classic, exquisite illustrations shine on every page, making this timeless tale even more enchanting. You can admire the royal finery of the palace, and the inviting glow from the cottage in which Snow White seeks refuge - which is home to seven dwarfs. It is perfect for reading aloud to youngsters, or for more confident readers to enjoy by themselves. Snow White's mother died soon after the girl was born. The King, her father, has married again, but although the new Queen is very beautiful, her heart is cold. Every day, she consults a magic mirror, which reassures her that she is the fairest one of all. But Snow White is growing up, and one day the mirror informs the Queen that Snow White is fairer still. The Queen is furious, and orders a woodcutter to take Snow White into the forest and kill her. The good man is frightened of the Queen, but he cannot bring himself to kill the girl. Instead, he leaves her in the forest, all alone. As it grows dark, Snow White has never felt so afraid. Moonlight shines through the trees. From among the leaves, bright little eyes peep out at her. At last, in a clearing ahead, she sees a little cottage gleaming in the moonlight. What will she find in there...? Sparkling details on every page of this magical boardbook bring this popular story to life. Mirror, mirror, on the wall, which is the sparkliest book of all? Why, this one, of course!
