I picked this one up because it was on display in the bookstore and the cover art caught my eye. I flipped through it and loved the illustrations. Having now read it, I found the characters flat and the plot meandering and predictable. I probably won’t revisit the story, but it is a beautiful book.

Sisters Snow and Rose go with their mother to live in a cottage in the forest after the disappearance of their father into the same woods. The sisters' personalities are quite different, but they understand each other well and are close. There is something dark and dangerous in the woods - but it isn't what others think. A marvelous fairytale retelling, full of mushrooms and bears and foxes, an unusual library, and a terrible secret.

Quotes

"To find out what a story's really about," the Librarian said, "you don't ask the writer. You ask the reader." (95)

A single sentence handwritten on tags, envelopes, and small notebook pages offers a hint of a story. Each is a nudge toward a narrative next to illustrations that also allow for a wide range of possible tales. A delightful supper companion after a long day.
