‘Snow White and the 77 Dwarfs‘ by the acclaimed Davide Cali and Raphaëlle Barbanègre, is a brilliantly funny fairytale and will resonate with parents everywhere.
The bright and bold cover alone will reel you in and yes, she really did draw 77 dwarfs!!! We counted.
But here’s where the story takes a rather different turn of events.
Snow White gets more than she bargained for when she takes on 77 dwarfs as opposed to just the original seven.
“First came the laundry.
Then the beard maintenance.”
This wasn’t going to be easy.
Barbanègre’s appealing illustrative style and rainbow palette won’t fail to capture the imagination of the younger reader and Cali’s humorous underlying message will certainly hit home with the more mature reader.
We won’t spoil the ending, but it’s the most unexpected, laugh-out-loud finalé for a fairytale you’ll have ever read. Guaranteed.
