Snow Whyte and the Queen of Mayhem - Melissa Lemon I received a copy of this from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

This is a clever re-working of the Snow White fairy tale that skillfully blends the familiar and the surprising to create a story that truly captivates.

Told from the viewpoint of the Mirror (with a lovely little twist at the end that I didn't see coming), the narrative is a little old-fashioned in a completely charming way. There's no poison apple, but there are seven dwarves - of sorts -, a deliciously wicked Queen, and no shortage of princes.

I love good reworkings of fairy tales and this one is by far one of the better ones.
