Zo White and the Seven Morphs by Barbara Silkstone
on March 24, 2013
Zo White and the Seven Morphs by Barbara Silkstone was an interesting interpretation of the classic fairytale.
COVER DESIGN: A little strange, but it sort of works for the story. Still, it was a little off putting for me. Until I started reading, I was a little nervous about the book, based on the cover. Also, based on the cover, I was not expecting a murder mystery.
WHAT I LIKED: The mystery of the morphs was my favorite part of the book; I did not see that coming in the end. Even though the cover is a little iffy, the title works really well for the story. Between the setting (circus) and the twist on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the title is appropriate. I also, really enjoyed the references to celebrities- "Lady Gaga in a convent."
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: I would have liked a bit more of a description of the inner workings of the magic mirror.
