Devoted sisters and forever friends, Snow White and Rose Red are as lovely and sweet as the delicate flowers that inspired their names.

"One evening, as they were sitting comfortably together, someone knocked on the door as if he wanted to be let in. The mother said, 'Quickly, Rose Red, open the door; it must be a traveler seeking shelter.' Rose Red went at once to the door and pushed back the bolt. She was sure that it was going to be some poor soul, but it wasn't at all. It was a big shaggy bear, and he stretched his broad, brown head right through the doorway....

"'Don't be afraid; I will not harm you! I am half-frozen from the cold, and only want to warm myself a little beside your fire...." "

A strange story soon unfolds. Will the girls help the bear...even if it means risking the wrath of a wicked dwarf? This imaginative tale by the Grimm brothers is filled with rich imagery, surprise and adventure.

In this Enchantmints Studio edition, a timeless Grimm Brothers tale springs to life with the lush illustrations of Denise Marshall.

Snow White and Rose Red is the perfect gift for the little one in your life. Also a great book for early readers!

About the Author:

The Brothers Grimm (Jacob Ludwig Karl and Wilhelm Karl) were born in 1785 and 1786 in Hanau near Frankfurt in Hesse. They were among a family of nine children, six of whom survived infancy. During their early childhood, both their father and grandfather died, leaving the children and their mother to struggle in reduced circumstances. During their early twenties, the two brothers began linguistic and philological studies, which would culminate in both Grimm's Law and their collected editions of fairy and folk tales. Their collections of tales became immensely popular, though the brothers' main goal was linguistic research. After running afoul of King Ernest Augustus I, the brothers were fired from their university posts and exiled. However, the next year, the two were invited to Berlin by the King of Prussia, and both settled there. Wilhelm died in 1859; his elder brother Jacob died in 1863.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

There once was a poor widow who lived in a little cottage by the woods. In her front garden grew two beautiful, intertwining rose bushes, one with white flowers, the other with red. The widow’s two daughters were just like the rose bushes – different, but equally lovely.
 
Snow White’s hair was white like the stars, while Rose Red’s hair was as dark as the space between them. Snow White was quiet and gentle, while Rose Red was loud and lively. Snow White preferred to sit cozily indoors and read while Rose Red liked to romp in the meadows and sing. But both girls were helpful, grateful and loving and never thought badly of anyone or anything. They loved each other so much that they always held hands when they walked together. When Snow White asked, “Will we ever leave each other?” Rose Red answered, “Not as long as we shall live.”
 
When they went into the woods to pick berries, they never feared the animals, for they had made friends with all of them. They fed rabbits clover from their hands. Deer grazed beside them, and birds perched on their shoulders and sang songs. If they stayed too long and it got dark, they would lie down beside each other and sleep on the moss until morning. Trusting and loving her girls, the widow never worried about them.
 
One morning when they awoke after sleeping overnight in the woods they saw before them a beautiful child in a pure white dress. The child stood silently and looked at them in a friendly way, then quickly disappeared into the forest. Looking around they discovered they had been sleeping right next to a cliff and surely would have plunged over it if they had walked any further in the dark. When they told their mother about it, she said the child must have been the angel who protects good children.
 
On winter nights, the girls would sit by the fireplace and sew while their mother read aloud. One stormy night, they were startled by a loud thumping at the door.
“Rose Red, please open it,” said their mother. “It must be a traveler seeking shelter.”
Rose Red hurried to the door, expecting to see some poor soul. But when a black bear stuck his head inside, she screamed and backed away. Snow White ran and hid under her mother’s bed and Rose Red followed.
