9781481476362: The Mirror's Tale (Further Tales Adventures)

Everyone has heard the story—the dwarves, the talking mirror, the evil witch. But this tale doesn’t end with Snow White. It’s only just begun.

Bertram and William are twin brothers, the thirteen-year-old sons of Baron Charmaigne of the castle Ambercrest. They are the descendants of the princess known as Snow White, whose fantastic story has assumed the aura of legend in the hundred years that have passed since her time.

Bertram and William, though identical in appearance, are vastly different in temperament—and only one of them can become Baron. But no one knows which one is the rightful heir because there is no record of who was born first.

After yet another prank gone awry, the Baron decides that the boys must be separated. It may even help to determine who will become the ruler since time apart may allow the boy’s strengths to develop. But when one of the twins uncovers a mysterious mirror—the one rumored to be from Snow White’s tale—the boys’ kinship is replaced by dark magic and deceit, and two kingdoms hang in the balance.

About the Author:

P. W. Catanese is the author of ten fantasy-adventure novels. His books have been received with critical acclaim and have been translated into five foreign languages. His Books of Umber trilogy has been nominated for six regional book awards, including the Texas Bluebonnet award, the Florida’s Sunshine State Young Readers award, and the Pacific Northwest Library Association’s Young Reader’s Choice awards. He lives in Connecticut. When he’s not writing books, Catanese draws cartoons, works for an advertising agency, and tries very hard to respond to every message from his readers. Meet him at PWCatanese.com, and on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-7–In this accessible entry in the series, Catanese imagines events many years after Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs ends. Mischievous Bert and timid Will, twin sons of the baron and constantly in trouble, are separated by their parents to keep them out of trouble. Bert is sent to The Crags, the former castle of the Witch-Queen of the Grimms' story, and now ruled by his Uncle Hugh and Aunt Elaine. He finds the enchanted mirror and is bewitched by it, deciding to kill his brother whom he believes is likely to inherit the barony from their father. While the plot starts a little slowly, it quickens and does not lag until the exciting and action-filled climax. The human characters have a contemporary feel, which is especially evident in their dialogue. This limits the magical and historical elements of the story, but makes it more accessible to reluctant readers. While Bert undergoes some soul-searching, the transformations in the boys over the course of the story are predictable and two-dimensional. The dwarves, or Dwergh, are the most successfully drawn and interesting characters. The mirror itself is far more evil than that in the original fairy tale, and, as the title suggests, this is really its story. Buy where there is a demand for fast-paced, easily read adventure fantasy.–Sue Giffard, Ethical Culture Fieldston School, New York City
