Snow White: A Graphic Novel

by Matt Phelan. Somerville, MA: Candlewick Press, 2016


A Retelling of the classic Snow White fairy tale that takes place in New York City in pre-Depression through the Great Depression (and is a great play with fairy tales and New York City during the Great Depression).


The art is breathtakingly told in black and white with touches of red in critical places and blasts of happy, pastel colors at the end. This is a touching tale for all ages and requires a great deal of critical thinking to follow the twists in the story as much is told through the art and limited text as the story jumps from panel to panel.
