Snow & Rose by Emily Winfield Martin
When I first held this book in my hand and looked through the magical, whimsical and dramatic illustrations of this fairy tale chapter book, I nearly cried.
This. Book. Is. Gorgeous.

Snow & Rose
Fairy Tale Chapter Book
Snow & Rose is a wonderful reimagining of the classic little-known fairy tale "Snow White and Rose Red." A stunningly well-written chapter book, it is peppered with Emily Winfield Martin's paintings.
Snow and Rose didn’t know they were in a fairy tale. People never do. . . .
Once, they lived in a big house with spectacular gardens and an army of servants. Once, they had a father and mother who loved them more than the sun and moon. But that was before their father disappeared into the woods and their mother disappeared into sorrow.
This is the story of two sisters and the enchanted woods that have been waiting for them to break a set of terrible spells.
The world Emily has created sits on the border of enchantment and wonder, with characters who are grounded in real emotions — emotions you'll recognize in yourself.
