Sleep Tight, Snow White by Jen Arena - ADVISABLE

Arena, Jen Sleep Tight, Snow White: 15 Bewitching Bedtime Rhymes.  PICTURE BOOK.  Illustrated by Lorena Alvarez.  Knopf (Random House), 2017.  $18.

Arena has written 15 tight little four line rhymes that are brilliantly partnered with beautiful illustrations that evoke a sense of wonder on each page.  The rhymes mostly work, but the reader needs to be familiar with the tales to really enjoy them.  The illustrations are the star of the book.  I would love to have any of them as a print for my wall.
