Written in verse, this is the previously untold story of the previously unknown 8th dwarf, named Creepy. He is banished to the basement for being different and, well, weird. Yet he plays a vital - and of course previously unknown - role in the popular tale of Snow White (whose title character is an intruder Creepy refers to as "the Maid").

I now have a new favorite dwarf.  Forget Grumpy and Doc, give me Creepy instead!  My 14-year-old son and I both got quite a kick out of this enlightening untold story of the 8th dwarf.  I love stuff like this – when we get to see an alternate point-of-view of such a popular tale.  Especially when it’s a slightly twisted, humorous point-of-view.

No, this isn’t exactly for your little kid, but I think teens and adults will get a good laugh from it.  It’s a very quick, but very entertaining read.  I’m in awe of the kind of mind that can come up with something like this, in verse.  I wish my mind worked like that.

Honestly, all of you must read this.  You’ll never be able to read Snow White again, without thinking of Creepy.

  1. Lol! I just posted my own review for this one as well! I totally agree with you about not reading Snow White without thinking of him again. 😉 Such a charming story and I'm already in the middle of re-reading it again since it's so easy to just pick up and enjoy! Can't wait for his next work to be published. Great review!
