Have you ever wondered about the TRUE (well, mostly anyway) story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs? Well, then you've come to the right book! Meet Borlen, aka Grump. He's an odd dwarf, because he was born close to The Surface. That's not normal for the gem-eating dwarfs, because there aren't many valuable gems and minerals up there. Grump is not used to the treacherous depths of dwarfs' mining caverns. And he's always dreamed of going to The Surface and seeing a human!! How cool would that be for a dwarf?! The one risky thing about going to The Surface is that if someone takes a dwarf by the beard, that unlucky dwarf must do their bidding! But Grump doesn't care. He feels like so much of an outcast already, he thought The Surface would be the place where he really felt like home. So, he decides to sneak up to The Surface to see what it was like! Grump quickly befriends Queen E.V.I.L. until she turns on him and Grump meets Snow White! Suddenly, the queen wants to kill Snow with a poison apple because Grump judged Snow fairer than the queen... ringing a bell from the original fairy tale? But what will happen when BOTH the queen AND Snow White take him by the beard? It's a wild ride from there, and Grump becomes more and more puzzled about how to fix the mess he's in... Read this amazing fractured fairy tale for adventure, humor, and more in this fun spin-off of the classic fairy tale Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs! I recommend this for ages 8+ and rate it 4/5 stars :)
