Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Rose Red and Snow White live in a humble forest cottage with their mother, a pet lamb and a dove. One night they welcome a stranger into their home, a bear as ``tall and wide as the doorway,'' who returns each night to warm himself by the fire. When spring arrives, the bear leaves to ``guard his treasures from the wicked dwarfs.'' Shortly thereafter, while out gathering wood, Snow White and Rose Red encounter a dwarf carrying a sack of gold. The next time they spy him, he has a sack of pearls, and later they find him surrounded with jewels, greedily counting his wealth. In true fairy-tale fashion the bear captures the dwarf, redeems his treasure and turns into a youthful prince freed of an evil spell. The extra-large storybook format makes each detail stand out in this newly interpreted classic. All ages. (March)
School Library Journal
K-Gr 4 The appealing illustrations in this large picture book portray a rural setting with obvious affection. There is a gentleness to many of them, but they can be excitingly dramatic when the subject warrants it. There are details to catch the eye of a child, but never any clutter. These are the most attractive illustrations provided for the tale in recent years, and of real appeal to children. It is, therefore, unfortunate that Watts presents a truncated version of the story with passages deleted, and bland, generalized language substituted for the specific, more exciting text of more complete translations. (Instead of the girls being sent to town to buy needles, thread, laces, and ribbons, they go for ``provisions.'') Like some other picture book versions, this one deletes the incident in which the girls spend the night in the forest and see a being whom their mother later identifies as the angel who watches over good children. Are religious references taboo in literature for today's children? Those wanting only a charming, pretty picture book may be satisfied with this book; those insisting on the best literary experience will not. Ronald A. Van De Voorde, Graduate Library School, University of Arizona, Tucson
