“Nadège et les 7 petits hommes” | Olivier Dupin & Séverine Duchesne | Frimousse, France | 44pp | 23 x 30 cm
Everyone knows the story of Snow White. Well, Nadège is just like her, totally cute, black hair, white skin, cheeks as red as cherries… She lives with her dad and naughty stepmother and spends her time taking selfies… Nadège becomes a beautiful young girl, even more beautiful than the Queen and this is enough to put the Queen in a black rage! As the traditional story would normally go, the Queen orders a huntsman to take her to the forest, kill her and bring back her heart as proof. Well in this version, she instructs a hunter to take her to the forest to cut her hair (making her bangs sideways, shaving it above her ears, but leaving long hair behind) and to bring the wicks back as proof. Terrible punishment that is the one of looking like a footballer! The hunter, however, doesn’t have the heart to do so. As Nadège finds herself wandering in an inhospitable forest, she sees an empty house: the one of…seven little men. But the story might not quite unfold as per the one you know… A humorous parody of the original tale, full of unexpected twists and turns!
