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"). (Goodreads Synopsis)
Yesterday I was approached by the author of this book for a review. Seeing it was only a couple of thousand words, I said yes straight away.
At seven pages long this is a quick little read and yet it is quite delightful. I love the way the story of Snow White has been re-imagined to include Creepy, the eighth dwarf, and the verse had me smiling from start to finish.
If you are looking for five minutes of fun to brighten your day, give this e-book a try.
