Snow White in New York

This is a very cool take on the classic Snow White tale. This time, Snow White lives in Manhattan with her father after the death of her mother. Alls well until he marries the Classiest Dame in town- who loves to see herself in the newspaper “The Daily Mirror”. But no one knows that she is really the Queen of the Underworld. When one day the Daily Mirror takes notice of Snow White, the Queen wants her done away with. But Snow White runs away and gets a job at a club downtown with a 7-man Jazz group. Turns out she can sing, and attracts the attention of a handsome reporter who features her in the Daily Mirror again and again. A poison apple becomes a poisoned cherry in a cocktail and you know the rest of the story. Fabulous illustrations with a hip art-deco style.  -Recommended by Julie
