Brief Summary: A beautifully illustrated and translated version of Snow-White and the Seven Dwarfs.  
Awards, Honors and Prizes:

Ideas for using this book in classroom or library and/or brief notes on curriculum connections/content learning standards/Common Core, etc.:

  • Discuss fairy tales and characteristics.
  • Read other versions.  Are there any similarities/differences between the different versions?  This version is quite dark…mentions cannibalism (the Queen eats the liver and lungs of Snow-White) and the Queen dies by dancing to death.  Might be better suited for older readers who are doing a fairy tale unit.

Special features included (if applicable) — index; timeline; author’s notes; further reading; etc.
