This version of Snow White is much kinder and gentler (and therefore much more suited for children) than the Disney version based on the evil queen. Yes, I did miss "Mirror, mirror on the wall . . .", but the story of Snow White, her sister Rose Red, the ONE dwarf and the prince trapped in the body of a bear, along with Barbara Cooney's illustrations, more than made up for it. If I had the time, I would love to research how one story could be so different, yet still all be attributed to the Brothers Grimm.
