Snow and Rose didn’t know they were in a fairy tale. People never do. . . .
Once, they lived in a big house with spectacular gardens and an army of servants.
Once, they had a father and mother who loved them more than the sun and moon.
But that was before their father disappeared into the woods and their mother disappeared into sorrow.
This is the story of two sisters and the enchanted woods that have been waiting for them to break a set of terrible spells.

In Snow & Rose, bestselling author-illustrator Emily Winfield Martin retells the traditional but little-known fairy tale “Snow White and Rose Red.” The beautiful full-color illustrations throughout and unusual yet relatable characters will bring readers back to this book again and again.
“The deeper meanings of the [story] do emerge, but the pleasure . . . is paramount.” —The New York Times

This retelling of a couple different fairy tales is cute and touching. Readers are given two different female characters, sisters Rose and Snow, both of whom are interesting heroines to root for. The amount of peril in the story might be a bit much for younger readers, but it is brief. This might be a good one to read together. The illustrations are enjoyable too.

Cute take on the old fairy tale.

Beautifully written adaptation of the lesser known Snow White and Rose Red fairy tale. Growing up, Snow White and Rose Red was my favorite fairy tale. Hopefully this enchanting adaptation will introduce it to a new generation of children.

Beautiful story, lovely illustrations. Gentle but not sugary, this would be a wonderful read a loud.

A lovely retelling of the classic tale of Snow White and Rose Red. Very reminiscent of Kate Seredy.

I highly recommend this to fans of fairy tales. It is a great example of a fairly simple classic tale retold and expanded in a way that remains true to the original. Also, IT IS SO PRETTY!!!
