8: The Previously Untold Story of the Previously Unknown 8th Dwarf by Michael Mullin

Written in verse, this is the previously untold story of the previously unknown 8th dwarf, named Creepy. He is banished to the basement for being different and, well, weird. Yet he plays a vital – and of course previously unknown – role in the popular tale of Snow White – whose title character is an intruder Creepy refers to as “the Maid”. (Intended for YA readers and up) From Goodreads

This short story is about a dwarf that was integral in the survival of Snow White, despite the fact that his fellow dwarfs banished him to the basement.  It was a funny and interesting take on the Snow White legend/fairy tale.  It skewers Snow White’s idiocy (she kept answering the door to the old bat who keeps trying to kill her) and makes you think that Creepy could have been there all along, hiding, lurking; being, well…Creepy.  4/5
