Summary: In this retelling of the classic fairy tale, Snow White finds refuge from the evil queen in a house inhabited by dwarfs. Only this time, it’s not seven dwarfs, it’s 77. Just learning their names (Elvis, Dudley, Bilberry, Kiki…) proves to be a chore, never mind fixing three meals a day and cleaning up afterward. After a few days of this routine, Snow White decides the queen is a better option. She requests two poison apples, and finally gets to enjoy a well-earned sleep.
Pros: Fractured fairy tales are always fun, and kids will enjoy the 77 rainbow-hued dwarfs on many of the pages.
Cons: The ending seemed a bit abrupt and unsatisfying to me. Kids may not quite get it, even if harried parents do.
