About this book

Red Rose and Snow White are as different as two sisters can be. Even so, they get along and, together with their mother, make a cozy life in their cottage in the woods. Then one night, Rose Red answers a knock at the door and finds a huge shaggy bear who gruffly asks for a warm place to sleep! Although alarmed at first, mother and daughters alike are soon charmed by the bear and happily shelter him from winter nights. When spring arrives, the girls sadly watch their friend lumber off. Soon after he disappears, they make a new acquaintance. Was this the little man the bear warned them of before he left?
