This one is all about Snow White who is very pretty, very talented and has dreams of becoming a pop star and who is obsessed with Boysnog (the boy group of the century). But the Mean Queen has other ideas and makes her listen to songs which she used to sing when she was famous. But the Mirror (never one to lie)tells the Queen Snow White is going to make it and thus seals her fate of being banished to the big bad city. But fortunately for her she bumps into the Seven Aliens pop group. Will the Mean Queen be able to stop Snow White's happiness or will her luck remain and will she become a famous pop star?
It's beautifully written by Laurence Anholt, and read by Neil Morrissey - providing voices for an assortment of aliens, the witch, her husband and of course, Snow White. He has also read other audio books in the series - Cinderboy, Daft Jack and the Bean Stack and the Emperor's New Underwear. He reads very well, although he does struggle a little to play female characters, particularly the young Snow White, and I think it might have been better to have another voice artist to read the female lines.
The music is fabulous - very well written and a lot of fun, and the Snow White Rap always has my nieces singing along.
Overall the story and the music are a little let down by the production - the lack of female voices, areas where "stings" of music are overused, and the irritating fact that the witch is always announced by a guitar riff.
However, my opinion aside, my nieces love it - it is a treat of a story with wonderful music, and that's all they care about!
The one thing that brought us to the book was the front cover it was very bright. We also were keen on the book because it was short and they got to the point very quickly. We couldn't decide on our favourite character because we liked most of the characters. We love how they spoke about a talented little girl who eventully gets to live her dream. We liked the lay out of the book and most of all liked the speech bubbles. We enjoyed this book very much.
We would definately consider reading more books in the series.
