The story may be familiar, but the cast of characters will surprise you. Set in New York City in the 1920s, this Snow White is a beautiful flapper, protected by seven jazzmen. Her wicked stepmother is the Queen of the Underworld, and Prince Charming, a reporter for the New York Mirror. Breezy text complements splashy art deco illustrations.
