This fractured fairy tale puts a fun twist on the story of Snow White.
Each and every day, Stella the master storyteller poses a single question to her magic storybook: "Storybook, storybook, carved upon the chair, who is the storyteller extraordinaire?" And each and every day, the book replies,"You, Stella, are a great story tella" But one fateful day, the magic storybook has a different answer for his powerful owner: "You, Stella, are talented it's true, but Joe Bright is quite a storyteller, too." Stella is enraged by the news of a talented newcomer, and so begins this delightful fractured fairy tale of a miffed storytelling enchantress, the winsome Joe Bright and the delightful seven genre dudes, whose memorable personalities and penchant for books of all kinds ultimately save the day for storytelling audiences throughout the kingdom. With comprehensive library lessons and vibrant illustrations, this charming picture book will have students remembering Joe Bright—and literary genres—happily ever after
