Talented graphic artists like Charise Mericle Harper, Brett Helquist, and Raina Telgemeier inventively reimagine such classics as Snow White, Puss in Boots, and more.

A comic book take on the fairy tales we grow up with. It isn't a graphic novel and therefore isn't too dark or above the child's head. Also broken up into shorter tales so the child isn't overwhelmed. TT (6 y/o) has been reading this to himself at bedtime and is really enjoying it!
