In this inspired rendering of the classic Grimm Brothers folktale, five-time Caldecott Honor winning artist Jerry Pinkney introduced two favorite children's characters to a new generation: the sly, scary wolf and the sweet little girl in her famous red hood.
In deep winter, a beautiful Queen is admiring the falling snow as she sits by the window sewing. Soon afterwards, a daughter is born to the Queen and King and is given the name Snow White. Time passes and Snow White reaches the age of seven; becoming even more beautiful than she was as a child. Several days later, the Queen asks the Magic Mirror if she is still the fairest in all the land - only to discover Snow White is still alive. Determined to make her second attempt a success, the Queen disguises herself as an elderly woman and travels back to the dwarves' cottage with a comb coated in poison. Convinced the woman means her no harm, Snow White accepts the poisoned red half and eagerly takes a bite; falling into a state of suspended animation. Years later, a Prince from a neighboring kingdom is travelling through the land with a hunting party when he comes across Snow White in her glass coffin. Reassured by the poisoned apple's effects on her stepdaughter, the Queen asks the Magic Mirror if she is the fairest of them all. Invited to the Prince's wedding, the Queen arrives to the Palace, and to her dread, realizes Snow White is the bride.
The Queen's hatred of Snow White originated when the young princess was unable to keep a secret from the Queen's mother Cora - an act of betrayal that resulted in the death of Regina's lover Daniel. The prince and his twin brother are characters also adapted from the story "The Prince and the Pauper".
Snow White eats the poisoned apple to save Prince Charming's life after being presented it by the Queen.
Originally, the Magic Mirror was once a Genie, and becomes trapped as the Queen's slave after making a wish to forever stay by her side. The Evil Queen disguises herself as a miller's daughter and names herself "Wilma" with the help of Rumplestiltskin.

The book that made me a reader, by a writer whose pure enthusiasm for life and story carries you on a lion’s back through the best of adventures. I remember at my vast old age in 7th grade sadly concluding that I was too old for the Narnia books now. The first series I read to myself, starting halfway through when I switched from listening to my mom read them aloud, to sneaking them off to my room to read ahead. I still remember the day I finished this book, laying on my parent’s family room couch on a bright, sunny summer day. The synopsis from the publisher reads, “When Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy are sent to stay with a kind professor who lives in the country, they can hardly imagine the extraordinary adventure that awaits them. Growing up, my personal favorite was the Michael Hague edition.  Partly because it was fully illustrated in color.

The sixth cover down is the one I have in my boxed set … all of those books have been literally read to pieces, and the back cover is missing off of LWW due to having been left outside in a summer rainstorm. The quote about the magic being IN the story, not just a story about magic, is so very, very true.
I have to admit that while I certainly enjoyed the earlier books in the series as a child, I never had that deep love for them.
I remember, when I was ten, that the librarian at the Katonah Library tried to get me to read this book. Fast forward two years, after I finally discovered the Narnia books for myself, and friends kept me after school for a Narnia trivia test. Features everything from librarian previews of upcoming children's books to news, reviews, and videos.
Readers will squeal with delight all over again during that most memorable scene when Little Red Riding Hood declares, "Oh, Grandmamma, what great teeth you have!"Pinkney's charming, masterfully-wrought illustrations--as warm and cozy as LIttle Red's cloak and as captivating ast he clever wold himself--are sure to lure you into the heart of this treasured tale. He has the rare distinction of being the recipient of five Caldecott Honors and the winner of the 2010 Caldecott medal for The Lion and the Mouse, and has since created two companion picture books: The Tortoise & the Hare and The Grasshopper & the Ants. It was written by the German authors Jacob and Wilhelm of the Brothers Grimm and incorporated into the book Grimms' Fairy Tales in 1812.
By accident, she pricks her finger on the needle and watches as three drops of blood fall onto the snow covered on the ebony windowsill. When the Queen passes away shortly afterwards, the distraught King remarries; taking a second wife.
She orders him to take Snow White into the woods and kill her; bringing back her lungs and liver as proof.
She rests, and awakens in the night to find the seven dwarves have returned from working all day in the mines to their cottage. Taking matters into her own hands, she disguises herself as an old peddler and travels to the dwarves' cottage with several stay-laces.
A naive Snow White opens the door and allows the disguised Queen to brush her hair, and faints as the Queen returns to the Royal Palace.
Filled with rage, she creates a poisoned apple and travels back to the dwarves' cottage disguised as a farmer's wife. Enchanted by her beauty, the Prince becomes infatuated with the princess and asks the dwarves for permission in taking the coffin back to his castle. As punishment, she is forced to wear heated iron shoes and dances in agony until collapsing on the floor dead.

I was convinced that someday I would meet the Pevensies and tell them that I knew about Narnia, too.
It all begins one rainy summer day when the children explore the Professor’s rambling old house.

The Narnia books, like the Anne books, are buried so deep in my heart they are an essential part of who I am.

And while the allegory is gracefully handled in some of them, there are moments in Prince Caspian and Voyage of the Dawn Treader where it gets in the way of good storytelling.
I beat it, of course, and then went home to find my mother in a tizzy; I was supposed to be at a dentist appointment.
He has won the Coretta Scott King Award five times, the Coretta Scott King Honor four times, and has been nominated for the prestigious Hans Christian Anderson Award. Seeing how the red seemed so vibrant against the white, the Queen wishes for a child - one with lips red as blood, hair black as ebony and skin white as snow. Though the new Queen possesses great beauty, she is also vain and wicked; convinced that one day her beauty would be compromised.
Snow White explains her situation to them and the dwarves agree to let her stay with them on two conditions - she becomes their housekeeper and does not answer the door while they're away at the mines.
That night, the dwarves return from the mines and come upon Snow White's unconscious state. When they come across a room with an old wardrobe in the corner, Lucy immediately opens the door and gets inside. He loved his beer, loved laughter and smoking a pipe, and the companionship of his friends and so on. She has served on Newbery, written for Horn Book, and has done other lovely little things that she'd love to tell you about but that she's sure you'd find more interesting to hear of in person. He was also the first children's book illustrator elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. He allows her to escape and kills a boar, bringing its lungs and liver back to the Queen, who has the cook prepare them before consuming them.
Though the Queen departs triumphantly, later, she learns her stepdaughter is still alive - the dwarves returned and cut Snow White free of the laces. She awakens; explaining what happened before, and promising to heed their warning to not open the door to strangers. Believing she is dead, the seven men cannot bring themselves to bury her and build a coffin of glass; keeping eternal vigil at her side. Suddenly, the servants stumble on a tree stump, which causes poisoned red half of the apple to dislodge from Snow White's throat; bringing her back to life. To her amazement, she suddenly finds herself standing in the clearing of a wood on a winter afternoon, with snowflakes falling through the air. Her opinions are her own and do not reflect those of EPL, SLJ, or any of the other acronyms you might be able to name. The Prince declares his love for her, and together they return to the Palace where Snow White is to be married to him. I don’t always think the oldest, most classic version of a tale is the one that kids should keep rending. If someone else comes along and does the tale better, by all means, let’s read that one… but has anyone done this better?
