Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Elisabeth Greenberg
This retelling of the Snow White story from the point of view of the seven dwarves is amusing and will produce chuckles from those well-versed with the fairy tale popularized by Disney. As readers engage in the story and laugh at Snow White's forgetfulness, as evidenced by banana cream pie with no bananas and ten-foot scarves for the short dwarves, they will begin to catch on to a new version of the old tale. Then they may consider the questions asked at the end: how would the Queen tell the story differently? How would the forgetful prince tell the story? The charm of the narrating is captured by dwarf number seven mentioning that the dwarves sometimes eat banana cream pie without bananas, just for old times' sake and the memory of that happy, forgetful Snow White!

There are two sides to every story sometimes seven! In this new spin on the classic story Snow White, the dwarves explain, from their point of view, how a sweet-natured but very forgetful, dizzy girl stumbles upon their cottage and turns their lives upside-down. Seriously, Snow White Was SO Forgetful! is a funny new take on a beloved fairy tale. I absolutely loved this story. The illustrations were vibrant and eye catching. Gives you a whole new look at Snow White which is funny and interesting read for your child. Sometimes it is fun to look at a story from another point of view. This makes children think about the "what if's". The colors are great and the story is easy to follow. The illustrations though by Gerald Guerlais are simply brilliant; they lift the average story into a book you should check out to see the pictures alone. Not boring for kids, especially those that cannot sit through a story time hour. I would definitely recommend.

My daughter brought this book and started reading it. I got very upset after a few lines. Original Snow White is a beautiful classic tale was transformed into a caricature. It seems that the author of this book did not have enough imagination to write a book of some other sorts. It is a shame, a real shame that now when we are struggling to teach our children to use correct language and read classics that actually have some basic wisdom, now it is substituted by third rate books like that.
