Overview

One dark winter evening there came a loud thumping on the cottage door. Rose Red sprang up....When she unbolted the door, a great brown bear thrust his head in.

Most girls would be frightened if a bear showed up on their doorstep, but not Rose Red. She loves all animals, and invites the bear into her home. This good deed leads to another, and eventually she rescues her new friend from an evil enchantment.

With rich and beautifully stylized art that transports us into a magical landscape, and a fresh spin on a familiar Grimm fairy tale, Dan Andreasan has created a unique, high-spirited heroine who deserves to take her place along Cinderella and Snow White.

Author Biography: Dan Andreasan is the illustrator of Halley Came to Jackson, the popular song by Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Pioneer Girl, a picture-book biography of Laura Ingalls Wilder. This is the first book he has written for children. He lives in Medina, Ohio, with his wife and two children.
