Remember Fractured Fairy Tales? They were my very favorite.
The beginning of this story goes about how you'd think it would with The Huntsman letting Snow go in the forest. She comes across a cottage and meets seven dwarfs.
"These dwarfs happened to have a bit of rock magic, but others were known for plant magic, or water magic, or calligraphy magic, or making shoe magic, or impressionist painting magic."
Snow convinces the dwarfs to let her use her skills of cleaning, organizing and project management and live in the cottage with them. Things go so well that soon the dwarfs build the second cottage that Snow uses to run bed and breakfast. The evil queen hears about this and goes to Snow attempting to finish the job that the Huntsman left unfinished. She offers Snow an apple:
"Snow White laughed. "I couldn't possibly take your apple," she said. "we grow our own in the backyard. Yours is lovely but has probably been shipped a long way. And we try to eat locally grown food."
I found this book almost too short. You could finish it in maybe 2 nights of bedtime storytime.
I read a DRC in exchange for an honest review.
