This is a remix of the Snow White fairy that is very cleverly done. In this rendition, there is no evil queen. Instead there’s a gifted storyteller named Stella who is afraid that her fame may wane. There’s no mirror for her to gaze into and ponder her status – she chats with a magical chair!

Stella the storytella' was the best storyteller in all the land until she heard from her magic storybook that Joe Bright was even more talented. She becomes determined to once again become the best. But Joe Bright has unexpected help from the Seven Genre Dudes who help Joe on his way to happily ever after.

Another must have for educators. Fractured fairytale that illustrates genres through the "dudes". Jackie Mims Hopkins is great!
