Reviewed by Trisha Dawn for Readers' Favorite Reut Barak’s Funny Fairy Tales: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is a retelling of its classic counterpart. Snow White’s stepmother would always annoy Shraga, the mirror, with her infamous question of who’s the fairest in the land. In return, Shraga would anger her by always stating that Snow White, the king’s daughter, is fairer than her. This sets off a series of events just for the Queen to get rid of her stepdaughter who she sees as her competition. This is a funny fairy tale indeed! In Funny Fairy Tales: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Reut Barak was able to successfully give this beloved children's story a modern and a little more mature twist without making it bland to the taste. In fact, the retelling is so good it can pass as an original, and that’s not exaggerating things! The humour was not out of place nor was it offensive in any way, despite some adult word choices. You will find yourself turning from one page to another, hungry for what’s to come next. Be careful while reading it in public; you might suddenly burst out laughing! Despite the twist, the author still had a good grasp of the original version. The important bits remained intact. It was impressive how Reut Barak wrote it that way and it seemed very respectful. Having said all of this, it's a book that everyone should read. We all need a laugh out loud moment. Funny Fairy Tales: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs can and will take you there, for sure.
There once was a magician, a magic mirror, and Anagrola. Anagrola was unhappy and talked the magician into giving her his magic mirror, Shraga and let her go marry a king which he did after a lot of debate. But Anagrola was still unhappy and focused on her looks and bothered Shraga all the time. He finally told her that Snow White, the kings daughter from a previous marriage was prettier than her. Anagrola get jealous and tries to get rid of her but Snow White finds employment with seven dwarfs that need some serious management. But when Anagrola learns Snow White is still alive she sets out to try and poison her with several apples. This is a cute retelling of Snow White. Personally I like the mirror and could see him planning some way to knock himself off the wall in an attempt at suicide. Anagrola was spiteful and vain and takes it serious when Shraga tells her Snow White, who is no beauty in this story, is prettier than her. Of course the dwarves are hilarious and the whole using an apple to try and kill the girl was over the top. My only complaint was this book says it is 157 pages long but it only has one sentence or less per page. It was annoying having to turn the page every sentence. But this is a cute retelling and a quick read. I received Funny Fairy Tales 1 from the author and Reading Addiction Virtual Book Tours for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.
