    One thought on “The Dwarf and the Twins: Snow White and Rose Red (Treasures Retold #1)”

    1. *I have received a copy of this book from the author for a honest review.*For such a small book it carried quite a punch.I absolutely loved it.The story was so nicely narrated I fell in love with it from the first words.All the characters were so lovable. Martin was goodness packed in a small package and Bear showed that there is always room for improvement in one's character.The Fairy Godmother was a hoot :)) she was so funny.This was a book that just relaxed me and reminded me of my childhood [...]

    2. Snow White and Rose Red is one of the Grimms’ most popular stories. But what if the Grimms brothers version is misguided? Katharina Gerlach turns this tale on its head.The story:Snow White and Rose Red grow up in a tiny cottage in the woods with only their mother to care for them. They don’t know their story, and their mother doesn’t tell them until they are old enough - they owe their lives to a shy dwarf named Martin, who watches over them.Martin doesn’t just watch over the girls. He h [...]

    3. Who doesn’t love retold fairy tales? I love the imaginative way Katharina Gerlach told this story. With an evil greedy King slowly destroying his kingdom and his fairy godmother. You don’t remember a fairy godmother in this tale? Well there’s one in this story and she plays an important role. Many years ago she gave Martin a magical beard, and he has used it well to save his hide many times.When Martin, our dwarf in this story, sees Adele, quite pregnant with twins, running from the King [...]

    4. I love a good fairy tale! There is nothing like a good fairy tale to make you feel and experience such a wide array of emotions in such a short time. Gerlach here has not told a good fairy tale - she has told a great one!Like so many young people I grew up reading fairy tales, although I do not quite remember all of the details of some of the lesser known ones. I know that I must have read Snow White and Red Rose but I definitely did not recall many of the details. I love that the original story [...]

    5. This book is a fantastic retelling of a classic story with a twist. It was expertly written being short in length but bit in storyline having numerous things happening to the main characters as they embark on a great journey. The main characters are Snow White and Red Rose and I am so happy to say that Red Rose is finally in a book that truly gives her a story of their own. In this book Red and Snow are independently living out of the castle that is normally Snow White’s home. The two sisters [...]

    6. This was a very cute retelling of Snow White and Rose Red. I like that the two girls were the best of friends but very different; while Snow White was quiet, meek and stayed closet to their home, which was in a cave, Rose Red was her exact opposite. She was adventurous outspoken and hated being kept in their cafe. To her, it felt like a prison. Snow White had visions of the future on occasions and Rose Red was an excellent hunter, always managing to bring enough food home that would sustain her [...]

    7. *I have received a copy of this book from the author for a honest review.*I was really excited to read this novella since I have twins and since I have all daughters, I've kind of become obsessed with fairytales and princesses in general (can't imagine why!).I've never done a real book review before, so without any spoilers, this book is a really well retold version of Snow White and her twin (I'm guessing fraternal twin) Rose Red. Instead of many little dwarfs, there is only one, and there is a [...]

    8. This was actually a fast pace ad light read. It romance is mild or lesser than that but at the same time this retelling was very captivating and quite different. I loved how the author portrayed the dwarf and his important role. It was very interesting to know what his thoughts were. I admit I was kind of slow on the uptake when the little secret wad revealed.Both Snow White and Red Rose were charming in their own unique way. Despite them being different they were very close and a tight nit fami [...]

    9. The Dwarf and the Twins (the original, Snow White and Rose Red by the Brothers Grimm) and the Bonus Story, Snow White's Father, were refreshingly told. Both had a more positive outcome than the original story. I particularly liked reading The Dwarf and the Twins from the dwarf's point of view. Being unfamiliar with the original story (outside of Disney's version), I particularly appreciated having the original tale included for comparison. Snow White's Father, the Bonus Story, illustrated what c [...]

    10. The Dwarf and The Twins is awesome! It was truly unputdownable; I literally finished it right on the spot. No kidding! xP The story also evoked all sorts of emotions inside me which reminds me of the first book of hers that I read, The Mechanic and The King and I thought that Katharina is truly a remarkable writer. I would definitely recommend this to others because I assure you that it won't let you down. One thing though, I got slightly confused with the 1st and 3rd p.o.v but apart from that a [...]

    11. This is the second novella I've read by Katharina Gerlach and I have to say she has a talent for telling stories! Another of my favorite fairy tale stories is the one about Snow White, so I was looking forward to seeing how the author would retell thisd I wasn't disappointed. The Dwarf and the Twins is a refreshing take on the story of Snow White and is a perfect story to read if you are looking for something you came start and finish in one sitting. I received a complimentary copy of this book [...]

    13. Ich mag ja Märchen unheimlich gerne und Schneeweißchen und Rosenrot ist eines dieser Märchen, welches einem vom ersten schauen an im Kopf geblieben ist. Ich kann noch ganz genau im Kopf nachbilden wie die Story abgelaufen und was alles so passiert ist.Vor allem kann ich mich aber an den bösen, bösen Zwerg erinnern. :)Aus diesem Grund empfand ich es als sehr angenehm, mal eine Version zu lesen in welcher der Zwerg unser Held und Freund ist.Zwerg, so wird er schon seit Ewigkeiten genannt. Abe [...]
