SNOW WHITE AND THE 77 DWARFS by Davide Cali and Raphaelle Barbanegre is a silly retelling of the classic fairy tale.
On the run from an evil witch, Snow White moves in with 77 dwarfs in the woods. She’s grateful for the safe harbor, but she quickly becomes overwhelmed by the task of supervising a large household filled with dwarfs.
Young readers will enjoy the illustrator’s bright colors and the increasingly harried look on Snow White’s face as she becomes more and more stressed-out.
Librarians will find a readership for this picture book among children who enjoy adaptations of popular fairy tales. Consider an activity where children compare the original version of a book with alternatives.
