Snow White - An Islamic Tale
After Snow White's Parents die she finds herself alone with a stepmother whose vanity is only matched by wickedness.
When the stepmother's jinn reveals that Snow White is the 'fairest of them all' she starts plotting against her.
To survive Snow White must escape the devious plans of her poisonous stepmother, who will not stop until she is dead.
Set in the heady snow-strewn woodlands of Anatolia by the illustrator Shireen Adams, this tale of flight, friendship, and forgiveness is richly detailed and beautifully brought to life.
Involving the power of a jinn, poisoned dates, seven dwarf sisters-in-faith, and a mysterious old peddler woman in the woods wearing a face veil, this lyrically told story offers a unique twist on this fairy tale, whilst keeping the classic much-loved story intact, including a hateful and vain stepmother, a considerate huntsman, and a charming prince.
"Snow White" is the second book in the Islamic Fairy Tales series, which looks to offer meaningful and faithful variants of these popular worldwide stories.
