Snow White by Matt Phelan

Reviewed by Jane Oliver-Purton (Library Staff)

This Snow White is a beautifully executed graphic novel of the traditional Snow White story, modernized to the 1920’s. Samantha White, nicknamed Snow, has her life drastically changed when her widowed father remarries the “Queen of the Follies,” an egotistical dancer who is obsessed with the need to get Snow out of the picture. The story is based in New York City, and the illustrations in this graphic novel bring out the darkness surrounding Snow, with touches of color adding a beautiful counterpoint. A great read for a cold and snowy night.
