Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Snow White and Rose Red are loving, happy sisters, although they are different as day and night. Together they live with their mother in cozy, peaceful cottage in the woods. Then, one snowy day, their peace is disturbed by a giant black bear looking for a warm place to rest. At first scared, the girls and their mother soon realize the bear is kind—in fact, there is more to the bear than meets the eye. Will the girls giving spirits rescue the bear from his troublesome and secretive fate? This age-old Brothers Grimm tale is here deftly retold and stunningly re-illustrated with modern, magical paintings by Kelly Vivanco.

About the Author

The Brothers Grimm (German: Brüder Grimm or Die Gebrüder Grimm), Jacob (1785-1863) and Wilhelm Grimm (1786-1859), were German academics, linguists, cultural researchers, and authors who together collected folklore. They are among the most well-known storytellers of European folk tales, and their work popularized such stories as ""Cinderella"" (Aschenputtel), ""The Frog Prince"" (Der Froschkönig), ""Hansel and Gretel"" (Hänsel und Gretel), ""Rapunzel"", ""Rumpelstiltskin"" (Rumpelstilzchen), and ""Snow White"" (Schneewittchen). Their first collection of folk tales, Children's and Household Tales (Kinder- und Hausmärchen), was published in 1812.
