I asked myself lots of questions, like how could Snow White have left those seven kind dwarves? Perhaps she never quite did.

Chickenpox and Crystal is an imaginative retelling of the classic fairy tale Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. Originally featured in Hilary McKay's Fairy Tales, this short story is sure to capture the imagination!

From the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize-winning storyteller Hilary McKay and featuring black-and-white line and tone illustrations from the talented Sarah Gibb.
