Hair black as night, lips redder than a salmonberry, and skin as white as freshly fallen snow, Alaska's Snow White is a fair princess at home in Alaska's wilderness. With her seven trusty sled dogs, she challenges a wicked stepmother who has magic powers and a heart made of ice.
Alaska's Snow White. Today we read Alaska's Snow White all together. It was a pretty cool story, let me tell you a few things. My favorite characters are Snow White and the witch. My favorite part s every part with the witch in it. But the best part is when Snow White froze.That made me kind of chilly and I hugged myself. Then I was much warmer. I love, love, love that story! I am so happy that we get to bring a copy of it home this Friday. Then I can show it to my family and read it as much as I want. I think Snow White is really pretty and I kept trying to stop myself from falling in love. I still don't know what salmonberry means. But, I LOVE LOVE THAT STORY. SO SO SO MUCH.

story is refreshingly different than original because of this winter
twist, the setting being an Alaskan village. Snow White is no damsel in
distress this time around! She is still the fairest of all the land, but
now is also a brave and highly skilled Alaskan musher and fearless
leader of her seven faithful sled dogs, which replace the classic
dwarves. The Evil Ice Queen still uses a mirror but to be fairest of all
is to be the best and most beautiful ice skater at the Ice Festival.

We truly enjoyed this enchanting retelling of the classic tale. I
appreciated the Alaskan Snow White for all her new strengths! The book
is a nice escape into the Alaskan traditions and ways of life. I was not
surprised but very interested to learn that the author lived in Alaska
for many years. The illustrations of this book are absolutely beautiful!
The story line is considerably different in this retelling, and the
artwork is gorgeous, but it leaves you wishing there was more beautiful
artwork to accompany every single aspect of the story!
