Reviews

Organic illustrations with an element of folk art complement the 3D format of this interpretation of the fairy tale. Text appears on foldout tabs designed to look like theater curtains, and each spread expands to show three levels of perspective, like intricately layered stage sets (through a group of trees in the immediate foreground, Snow White is seen wandering toward the dwarves' home, while rolling hills and the departing woodsman can be seen in the distance). A gracefully designed vision that will draw readers in. Ages 3-up. (Nov.) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

Gr 3-5-Unusual paper engineering makes this a particularly memorable version of the familiar tale. Each of the five spreads opens at a broad angle, revealing a three-layer "stage" bordered by sumptuous curtains. Birds, squirrels, and other wildlife join viewers in looking through a die-cut screen of trees (or in interior scenes an archway) at gracefully posed, richly clad figures. The jewel-like colors, as well as Ray's almond-eyed Snow White and dusky-skinned Prince, give the tale an otherworldly air missing from other 3-D versions. Side flaps conceal a briefly told rendition of the story, but children will hardly need to refer to it to follow the action. Fine for display, and for shared reading with a small audience.-John Peters, New York Public Library Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
