Fairest of All: A Tale of the Wicked Queen is a novel written by Serena Valentino, based on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, that serves as a prequel to the film, telling the story of how The Queen became the villainous woman she was in the film, with the Magic Mirror having been a strong negative influence on her.
For anyone who’s seen Walt Disney’s Snow White, you’ll know that the Wicked Queen is one evil woman! After all, it’s not everyone who wants to cut out their teenage step-daughter’s heart and have it delivered back in a locked keepsake box. (And even if this sort of thing is a common urge, we don’t know many people who have acted upon it.)
Now, for the first time, we’ll examine the life of the Wicked Queen and find out just what it is that makes her so nasty. Here’s a hint: the creepy-looking man in the magic mirror is not just some random spooky visage and he just might have something to do with the Queen’s wicked ways!
