This is a cute charming story for a Middle Grade reader. I made the mistake of thinking it was YA.

There are beautiful watercolor illustrations through out the books that are incredibly sweet. They remind me a bit of Beatrix Potter.

The story feels very much like you are being told a fairy tale. There is no character growth or development and things just happen to the characters. Each chapter is a new encounter with the title characters, Snow & Rose and some unlikely, person, place, object. Parts of the story feel very disjointed and tend to leap about a bit. However everything is related at the end and is all tied up nicely. Compared to the ultra slow set up in the beginning the conclusion feels a bit rushed.

It is an enchanting tale for a young girl who likes fairy tales, but for me personally next time I’ll pass.

It is cute, many beautiful water color images.

But things just happen to the characters."

Sass You might like The Hazel Wood instead! That is a YA book I bought as a gift for a young reader entering high school next year. It’s dark.
