New Book: Snow White and Rose Red illustrated by Kelly Vivanco

(US or UK)

I teased this book last year but it's now available to own! And I have a few more images to share, too. The book is Snow White and Rose Red illustrated by Kelly Vivanco. Lovely, lovely and not the usual interpretation of this beloved tale.

Book description:

Snow White and Rose Red are loving, happy sisters, although they are different as day and night. Together they live with their mother in cozy, peaceful cottage in the woods. Then, one snowy day, their peace is disturbed by a giant black bear looking for a warm place to rest. At first scared, the girls and their mother soon realize the bear is kind—in fact, there is more to the bear than meets the eye. Will the girls’ giving spirits rescue the bear from his troublesome and secretive fate? This age-old Brothers Grimm tale is here deftly retold and stunningly re-illustrated with modern, magical paintings by Kelly Vivanco.
