Snow White: A Graphic Novel
A beautiful girl with snow white skin, seven young boys who help her, the queen of the Ziegfield Follies, and a ticker tape that lets her know who is most beautiful of all. It's a twist on an old, wonderful tale almost completely told in pictures, and you're going to love it.
There have been so many versions of the tale of Snow White that you might be thinking that a new twist isn't even possible, but Snow White: A Graphic Novel won't disappoint you. Set in the glitz and glam of pre-Depression era New York City, the black and white graphic novel will make you feel like you've stepped into a film noir masterpiece. You can hear the whispers of a mystery narrator in your mind as you look at the dramatic scenes of Snow White running through the alleys of New York to escape Mr. Hunter, the man hired to kill her. I don't want to spoil the surprise, but only New York's magical world can provide the perfect glass coffin for our princess when she gets a hold of a poison apple from a street vendor.
I'm hoping you've signed up for the Reading Marathon for 2017. If so, this one fits in a lot of categories - graphic novel, featured on VBPL reads, and I definitely recommend it.
