Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 4. This thematic distant cousin to "Beauty and the Beast" tells of two young beauties befriending a bear who is actually a prince under an evil spell. After they rescue an ungrateful dwarf three times, the girls witness the bear's assault on the dwarf and the prince's release from the spell. Cause and effect is a bit shaky in this tale, but the picture book is true to the Grimms. Unlike Snow White & Rose Red illustrated by Gennady Spirin (Philomel, 1992), this simplified retelling eliminates the Grimms' religious undertones. The smooth text, marred a bit by some careless grammar, is the basis for the illustrator's large oil paintings enhanced by pictorial grace notes on the text pages. Sanderson's strength lies in architecture and landscapes. The human beings, carefully and skillfully drawn from life, often seem stiff and out of place in their environments. The most successful beings here are the two sisters, sturdy little girls with a sweet energy, and the dwarf who is satisfyingly nasty. The language is too sophisticated for beginning readers, but the pictures give a solidity to this slight tale that makes it enjoyable for young listeners.?Sally Margolis, formerly at Deerfield Public Library, IL

From Booklist

Ages 6^-8. Sisters and best friends Snow White and Rose Red have an enchanted forest in which to play and a variety of woodland creatures with whom to play. This faithful retelling of an original Grimm folktale is enhanced by Sanderson's rich oil paintings. The girls and their mother are appealingly realistic characters, who have unusually friendly relationships with animals, which is important, since there are no other humans in the story. Drama and suspense come into the story with the sudden appearance of an enormous talking bear, who is soon befriended by the family. Evil is introduced into the girls' lives in the guise of the greedy, grouchy dwarf. Young readers may be unfamiliar with this story but will enjoy the action as the sisters rescue the dwarf three times before he comes to a bad end. The protagonists grow up and proceed to find happiness in this traditionally told tale. Karen Morgan

I made my mom read this story so many times I actually memorized every word. This was my most favorite story ever and the reason I learned to love reading. Stories like this where evil is punished and good rewarded teach a needed lesson these days. I am so glad This book can still be found! I am buying it to read to my newborn daughter.

I bought this about a year ago for a little girl, aged 5. Her older sister (aged 8) also ended up loving it. The story is a simple one - two young girls Snow White and Rose Red living deep in the woods give refuge to a bear. Later they encounter a dwarf who is consistently rude to them. They rescue him several times, but receive no thanks in return. Much later, the bear shows up, kills the dwarf (who it turns out pull a spell on him). And lo - a handsome prince appears. He and his brother marry Snow White and Rose Red.
The pictures in this book are beautifully drawn, with little details making the story come alive. I was lucky enough to find this book on sale, but I think it would be worth adding to the library of a child loving fairy tales.
