My Take on the Book
This was a fun take on the stories of Cinderella and Snow White. Especially with TV shows that are on now like "Once Upon a Time" where you see the characters of different books interacting with one another, this book lets kids see what it would be like if the two were friends and writing to one another as their lives unfold. While the story lines of the individual tales of the two were similar to what someone would hear before, the idea of them as pen-pals was different. Also, the ending has a bit of its' own twist as well which was a bit of fun too! The illustration in this book was excellent and the story flows well too. All-in-all if you have children in your home who enjoy the stories of these two princesses, you and they will love this book!
