“Once there was an Evil Queen who cared about only one thing-that she was fairest of all. When she learns that Snow White‘s beauty is greater, she sets out to destroy the girl. It is then that Snow White finds herself lost. Then, she finds her way to seven little men who change her life forever. They grow to love her as she does them. When the Queen returns and all seems lost, love saves the day once more.”

Cynthia Rylant‘s unforgettable retelling is the perfect complement to the breathtakingly expressive illustrations that Gustaf Tenggren created to set the tone for Walt Disney’s animated film. Together these two incredible artists have created a Snow White that reminds us of the power of hope, friendship, and love.

This is the third book in the series of Disney fairy tales
illustrated with vintage and original pre-film art from the archives after Cinderella and Alice In Wonderland, to be released in the US on August 18 2009.
