Devoted sisters and forever friends, Snow White and Rose Red are as lovely and sweet as the delicate flowers that inspired their names.
"One evening, as they were sitting comfortably together, someone knocked on the door as if he wanted to be let in. The mother said, 'Quickly, Rose Red, open the door; it must be a traveler seeking shelter.' Rose Red went at once to the door and pushed back the bolt. She was sure that it was going to be some poor soul, but it wasn't at all. It was a big shaggy bear, and he stretched his broad, brown head right through the doorway....
"'Don't be afraid; I will not harm you! I am half-frozen from the cold, and only want to warm myself a little beside your fire...." "
A strange story soon unfolds. Will the girls help the bear...even if it means risking the wrath of a wicked dwarf? This imaginative tale by the Grimm brothers is filled with rich imagery, surprise and adventure.
In this Enchantmints Studio edition, a timeless Grimm Brothers tale springs to life with the lush illustrations of Denise Marshall.
Snow White and Rose Red is the perfect gift for the little one in your life. Also a great book for early readers!
