"Mirror, mirror on the wall, Who is the fairest of us all?"repeatedly asks the Queen, Snow White's stepmother."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 yet another enchanting fairy tale from the Brothers Grimm! She always gets the answer she wants, till Snow White turns seven, and the mirror should truthfully answer,"Snow White.
Kirkus Evaluations 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. Burkert's illustrations are magical, light-filled creations that more than earn the book its Caldecott Honor Book status. This really is an unforgettable interpretation of a well-loved story. This delightful book's extra-large format showcases the fabulously detailed illustrations, alternating two facing pages of art with two pages of straight text. (Ages 6 to 9) Jarrell retained the Grimm (and grim) ending for the tale, as the stepmother is forced to dance to her death.
