Belinda Downes's gorgeous embroidered illustrations bring life, depth, and emotion to this classic story of betrayal and the power of love . This book followed the same plot line as the movie Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Belinda Downes's gorgeous embroidered illustrations bring life, depth, and emotion to this classic story of betrayal and the power of love. Again, I like the popular Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs so I liked this one as well. The pictures of the characters were different in this book, and even thought I did not like them as much I think that could be a great lesson to do a compare and contrast because they are the same story but such different illustrations. Another great lesson that this book would be good for is vocabulary.

Joan Aiken, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Dorling Kindersley (New York, NY), 2002. Of her illustrations for Aiken's Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Gillian Engberg wrote in Booklist that "Downes coaxes extraordinary atmosphere and expression from her fabric and thread. "I have drawers and cupboards full of fabrics, threads, wools, paint, paper and everything I need to help me design and make embroidered collages," the illustrator explained on the Images of Delight Web site.

They were the seven dwarves who mined for gold in the mountains. Now the queen, believing that she had eaten Snow White's heart, could only think that she was again the first and the most beautiful woman of all.

We found this book at our local library and I was so taken with it that I special-ordered a used copy. The artwork is just lovely and my daughter enjoyed the humor that the author added to the story -- particularly Snow White's sampling of the food at the Dwarfs' house and the character given to the magic mirror. I occasionally get up in arms about changes made to the "original," but these changes were in keeping with the version I was familiar with, and with folklore one would expect variation to improve the telling. That is certainly what happened here.

One can always trust the talents of Joan Aiken to put a fresh spin on an enduring classic. It's wonderful to read a version of the Snow White story in which the heroine is not pure sappiness personified, where the wicked queen is not simply the embodiment of all that is evil, where the magic mirror has something of a sarcastic attitude, and where so many little details of the story, long taken for granted, are actually EXPLAINED: why the queen has these magical powers, how she acquired the mirror, how the huntsman handled his deception, what the dwarves' names were, where the charming prince lived...And the embroidered illustrations are, just simply, magical---the detail and cleverness will hold the attention of any squirming small child. I can't wait to read this aloud to my niece and nephew, and show them the wonderful pictures.

All I can say is WOW! It may be hard to tell from the picture, but all of the illustrations in this book are actually very beautiful, very intricate embroidery work. It's unbelievable and very exquisite when you see it in person. ALso look at her other kids book, The Starlight Princess -- Amazon's so great with the ability to see inside of the book and you can see inside the Starlight Princess to see better detail of Belinda Downes' exceptional work. What brilliant illustrations!! Cannot say enough!!
