What it’s about: The traditional fairy tale set in Depression-era New York City.
What made me pick it up: I was working the children’s desk in the library and it was there so I paged through it. I didn’t get to finish it so I placed a hold on it.
My favorite parts: I really liked how this was modernized. It fit so well into the time period. The illustrations are mostly black and white and quite engaging. Like the other graphic novels I enjoy most, this had few words and panels so it was easy to follow. I also enjoyed the author’s interpretation of the dwarfs.
Who it’s great for: Struggling readers who want a fairly thick book to complete. Fairy tale fans of all ages. Those interested in but intimidated by graphic novels .
