Having never reading this fairy tale before I thought it was a nice little treat. I thought the two girls Snow and Rose were pretty adventurous and they had a lot of spunk. I really liked their friendship with Ivo a lot. Ivo was a pretty interesting character as well. I really enjoyed this book but I figured out things quickly, so I had to give it three stars. I did love that it ended the way it did, and I liked the characters, so that's why it got a three star and not a 2 1/2 stars or even 2.
It also makes me want to read the real version of this fairy tale, to see how different this one was from that one.
