"Mirror, mirror, on the wall,
Who's the fairest one of all?"

Originating in seventeenth-century French folklore, the story of Snow White has long been one of the world's most memorable childhood tales.

It is the story of an evil queen determined to do away with a girl--with skin as white as snow, lips as red as blood, and hair as black as ebony--who threatens the queen's quest to remain the most beautiful in her kingdom. This new gift edition presents the unabridged version of the Grimms' tale, with an original interpretation by renowned artist Camille Rose Garcia that artfully combines wit and dark romance.


It is no secret that I LOVE Fairy Tales. Snow White is one of my all time favorites. This is the original Snow White tale that all other versions have been based on. I always find it fun to go back and read the originals to see what small parts of the story have been changed throughout the years.

“Snow White lay in the coffin for a long, long time. But she did not decay, and she looked just as if she were sleeping, for she was still white as snow and red as blood, and hair as black as ebony.”

A fresh new look!

What makes this Snow White book stand out from so many others is the artwork.

One of my favorite scenes! The queens third attempt to get rid of Snow White.

Have you ever seen Snow White look so awesome??? I love it so much I have been stalking Camille Rose Garcia’s website to see more of her art. I have never thought before of having any type of fairy tale tattoo but after seeing all this wonderful art I am totally rethinking it.

If you are a Fairy Tale fan, or just love to look at something beautiful, I recommend Snow White. This is one version that must be seen.

Happy Reading,
