Rosie White Charming—the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming—discovers that being the fairest in the land isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be in this charming continuation of the beloved fairy tale.
Meet Rosie White Charming. You probably know her parents, Snow and Prince. Yup—that Snow and Prince. You would think that being the only daughter of two of the most famous people in fairy tale history would be awesome.
But you would be wrong.
After failing to secure a date for the Fall Festive dance, Rosie is on a mission to prove that the daughter of the fairest in the land can actually hold her own. With the help of a mysterious and magical compact that her mother gives her (and a nice blowout from her mother’s favorite salon) Rosie starts to become the person she thinks she should be. But is being the fairest in all of the land really going to give Rosie her happily-ever-after?
“Readers will enjoy Littman’s (Backlash) riffs on and jabs at the original story (on how Rosie’s parents met: “Every time I imagine being totally passed out and waking up to find some strange guy kissing me, all I think is, ‘Eww, nope! Nope! Nope!’ ”) and take heart in the underlying message about being true to oneself. Ages 8–12.”
“There are many moments of laugh-out-loud fun in Littman's mishmash of fairy tale and quirky reality, including appearances by Rosie's "height disadvantaged ‘uncles.' " Rosie is loving and compassionate, and she narrates her tale with wit, humor, and just the right amount of middle school angst. Inventive and, yes, charming.”
