Kratičká novodobá pohádka o tom, jaké je to být dcerou Sněhurky a prince Krasoně. A také o potížích s tím, jak si najít kluka na ples. Nic extra, každopádně v tom vidím dobré čtení pro začínající malé čtenářky. Tohle by je mohlo bavit

The "fairy tale characters in the modern world," bit has long been overdone for kids books. There is nothing new here, merely a weirdness at the lack of explanation of how the characters happen to be living in the modern world, and a typical, trite, "learn to love yourself and you'll meet the right boy," theme worthy of the ickiest of Disney Princess nonsense. If you want this sort of thing, head for The Fairy-Tale Detectives instead.

Milá a nenáročná rozprávka o dievčine, ktorá sa hľadala. Najskôr chlapca na ples a potom aj svoj štýl, kým prišla na to, že nechce, aby jej radilo čarovné zrkadlo...

So, modern girl is a princess who is the child of Snow White and Prince Charming ... in a totally modern, royalty-free, and under all normal circumstances magic-free America.

Not sure how this works, and it doesn't bother explaining.

Modern girl has never dressed up in her life -- somehow -- despite having two parents who live for appearances. She finally does, and finds herself going shallow and decides to die her hair 'ugly' so that she can turn back.

I am totally on board with the

Daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming, Rosie has a lot to live up to. To make matters worse, the school dance is coming up and she doesn’t have a date yet. When she uses a mirror of her mom’s she finds, Rosie uses it to improve her image and get a date, but the advice it’s giving is not good. Can Rosie figure out a way to get a date for the dance?

The plot is engaging and entertaining. The characters are slightly cliché, but grow as the book goes on. The fantasy world built into the story

Rosie wants a date and she would do anything to get one. But in the end was it really worth it?

Super, super cute.
If you hate fairy tales, like me, you'll like this story that's aimed for 8-12 year old kids. And yet, if you love fairy tales, you'll probably like it to.
Rosie, the main character, is Snow White and Prince Charming's daughter. I think the kid is totally awesome, but everyone else thinks she needs prettier clothes and shoes and make-up and blah, blah, blah. Once her mother gives her a mirror compact...that seems to talk to Rosie in rhyme...then Rosie thinks she needs all that

What happens when you’re the daughter of the fairy tale world’s version of Brangelina – Snow White and Prince Charming – and you can’t get a date for the Fall Festive school dance? This is Rosie White Charming’s dilemma in Charmed, I’m Sure. She grits her teeth and asks her mom – now a lifestyle blogger for her hugely famous brand – for help, receiving a complete makeover and magic compact from Snow White. At first, it’s great – guys are noticing her! Her friends think she looks fabulous! – but ...more

The story: Rosie is the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming, now living in New York City. All her friends have dates for the Fall Festive, but not Rosie--and now she's determined to score a date or die trying. When she asks her mom for advice, all she gets is a magic gold compact that's determined to help her become the Fairest in All the Land...even if that means turning ugly on the inside. The Seven Dwarves have never had a date in their lives, so they're no help. Even when Rosie ...more

I thought this was a great story with an excellent theme about how you are beautiful the way you are. Rosie was a sweet girl with a great personality. The one thing I found off was the setting. Snow White in New York City? And why did all those other fairy tale people live there too? It just felt unrealistic to me. I enjoyed the story other than that.

I'm not quite sure what to think about this one. On the one hand, fairy tale retellings occasionally become popular in my library, and this one involves the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming living in New York City. On the other, the main plot was that Rosie wants a date for the school dance and her looks and lifestyle obsessed mother thinks that a makeover accomplish that. This sort of happens in the end, but only after Rosie gets her

A really cute, hilarious and quick read from Littman, more known for her serious YA. In the vein of Disney's Descendants, this takes place from the POV of Snow White's daughter as she navigates middle school and trying to distance herself from her fairy-tale parents. Littman incorporates all the characters from the tale of Snow White (aside from the evil stepmother) like the Huntsman and the Seven Dwarfs, which makes it an interesting take on the usual retelling (also much funnier than most ...more
A quick read centering on the angst of young Rosie (Rosemeade, daughter of Prince Charming and Snow White) as she navigates finding a date for her first school dance. Advice swirls around her as Rosie contends with a mom-instigated makeover that produces a 'fairest in the land' new Rosie, a mouthy and not just a little bit nasty Mirror- remember the one that sent grand-mama into a jealous spin? And well meaning friends, girls at school, Harold the Huntsman, and a number of height challenged ...more

What a fun book on Snow White's daughter in present time. A nice story about a young girl trying to figure herself out and what happens when her looks change and the magic mirror gives her bad advice.

A fun read, like a Disney Channel movie in book form. I liked it okay, but I'm not the intended audience so I'm not gonna judge.

This fun fractured, contemporary, post Snow White story explores beauty and what it really means to be the fairest of them all.
