Synopsis
Each day Snow White’s stepmother looks into a magic mirror to make sure she is the prettiest woman in all the land. But one day when the mirror says Snow White is prettier than her, she becomes so angry that she orders a hunter to kill the girl. The hunter takes pity on her, however, and lets her escape. Snow White wanders around until she arrives at the house of the Seven Dwarfs. When her stepmother finds out she’s still alive, she is determined to kill Snow White herself and succeeds by giving her a poisoned apple. The Seven Dwarfs cannot save Snow White and lay her in a glass coffin . . . until a prince rides by.
Amazon.com Review
"Mirror, mirror on the wall, Who is the fairest of us all?" repeatedly asks the Queen, Snow White's stepmother. She always gets the answer she wants, until Snow White turns seven, and the mirror must truthfully answer, "Snow White." At the news, the Queen turns yellow and green with envy and commands the huntsman to kill Snow White and bring her "lung and liver as a token." Thus begins another enchanting fairy tale from the Brothers Grimm!

Kirkus Reviews called this collaboration between Randall and Nancy Eckholm Burkert "a sort of legend even before its time of publication." Jarrell also wrote The Bat-Poet and The Animal Family, a Newbery Honor Book. Jarrell retained the Grimm (and grim) ending to the tale, as the stepmother is forced to dance to her death. Burkert's illustrations are magical, light-filled creations that more than earn the book its Caldecott Honor Book status. This delightful book's extra-large format showcases the fabulously detailed illustrations, alternating two facing pages of art with two pages of straight text. This is an unforgettable interpretation of a well-loved story. (Ages 6 to 9)
