As far as graphic novels go, this one was okay. A cool idea for a story; I really enjoyed the concept. Full disclaimer, I have not read the poem that this graphic novel was based on so I may not have a fair opinion of the piece. But on the whole, I felt there wasn't much to the story. It tells of the existence of an 8th dwarf and how he helped to save Snow White from the Queen. That's really all there is to it. You don't see what happened to Creepy after Snow White is kissed by the Prince (besid ...more

I first encountered the story of the 8th dwarf when I reviewed TaleSpins for a book tour. Out of the three stories in that set, the "8th Dwarf" was my favorite. So when I learned that there was a comic version of the story, I knew that I had to get it. After two years of purchasing it, I finally got to read it and I highly enjoyed it!

Unlike the original story, this was not told in verse. It was told in a comic book style with the speech bubbles and graphics. It still contained its dark

Such a great twist on the Snow White story! According to this author there were 8 dwarves not 7. The 8th dwarf was named Creepy because he was so different from the other 7 dwarves. Creepy is strange because he likes to be alone and cranky in temperament so much that the the 7 dwarves lock him in the basement. One day as the 7 dwarves go off to work, a stranger bursts into the cottage. Creepy becomes involved with Snow White in ways you would not guess. Will Snow White get her prince or not?

Re-tellings of classic fairy tales have been popular for a while now. While this graphic novel doesn't break new ground with the concept--this time it's a re-imagining of the Snow White story, including the unknown 8th dwarf that lives in the basement--it is enjoyable to read, and has a fun cartoon style to the drawings. I expected this to be far more "creepy" (which is also the 8th dwarf's nickname) but it did make me laugh at times and would make a very cute short film if ever put to screen.

I have read this poem so many times I think I have it memorized. Creative, funny and perfect for all ages. I have read it to middle school students, peers and even my parents! This story poem is a perfect example of creativity in word play, imagination and classic tale reinterpretation. I love this book!

I loved the illustrations in this graphic novel the ads added a little something extra. Very cute idea. The story was good my only complaint is I think the ending needed a little something. All in all though I loved it. I would recommend it to fans of fairy tales and graphic novels alike. :)
