Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 3–7—This adaptation of "Snow White and Rose Red" makes the classic fairy tale accessible and intriguing for today's readers. Sisters Snow and Rose are daughters of a nobleman who disappeared under troubling circumstances. Forced to vacate their grand residence after their father's presumed death, the girls must now live in a humble forest cottage with their grieving mother. The sisters explore the forest, narrowly escape dangers, discover a peculiar library, repeatedly rescue the strange Little Man, and befriend a young boy named Ivo. Something truly evil lurks in these woods, however, which accounts for the tragically frequent disappearances of locals—perhaps even for their father's disappearance. Each chapter has a vignette feel to it; some of the particularly poignant chapters demonstrate with masterly gentleness how people deal with loss in different ways. Several single pages, interspersed throughout the narrative, recount the prophecies, observations, and dialogue of the forest trees. These pages insert a dark mysteriousness into the flow of the story. Lovely pencil and watercolor illustrations accompany the text, lending a wispy, dreamlike quality to the tale. The suspenseful, dramatic action doesn't really start building until the last quarter of the book, but readers will realize details have been quietly dropped throughout the entire narrative that contribute to the climax and conclusion. VERDICT A solid purchase for most mid-size libraries. Fairy-tale fans will delight in this fascinating spin on a lesser-known tale.—Sara White, Seminole County Public Library, Casselberry, FL

Review

"The writing is lyrical, with laudable word choice, alliteration, and imagery capturing the magic of the woods. For lovers of fairy tales, this story of sisterhood, taking risks, and being kind is a physically beautiful book with an appealing cover and captivating full-color illustrations."--Kirkus Reviews

"This moody fairy tale emphasizes family, friendship, and the powerful bond of sisterhood. Martin’s characterization of the two contrary sisters is especially moving." --Publishers Weekly

"Like most of the Grimm brothers’ tales, this peculiar story carries sinister overtones, but Martin does a nice job of keeping the dark atmosphere from overwhelming younger readers, largely though her whimsical touches."--Booklist
