    The Shadow of the Bear


    Once upon a time In New York City...

    First published in 1997, this first of the Fairy Tale Novels is based on the traditional fairy tale "Snow White and Rose Red" by the Brothers Grimm.

    An ongoing favorite with readers of all faiths, this young adult novel features two very different sisters: shy Blanche and adventurous Rose, and their friendship with a young street tough named Bear.

    Since its initial publication, The Shadow of the Bear has become an award-winning audio drama and a theatrical script, and the original book continues to remain one of our best-sellers.
