Snow White's Seven Patches

A Vitiligo Fairy Tale


Snow White's Seven Patches: A Vitiligo Fairy Tale is a modern-day story with the classical theme of good conquering evil. You'll find the age-old ingredients of a magic mirror, poisonous apple, dwarfs, and romance here. However, this adaptation includes a vain mother who's so clouded by beauty myths that she keeps her own daughter a secret, while plagiarizing the workings of her mind. Everything falls apart when the good mirror finally speaks the truth.
  • Young readers with vitiligo will look at their own skin patches with a unique lens, finding interesting shapes and stories behind each puffy cloud of white.
  • Readers will be introduced to the firsthand-hurt that plagiarism can cause through Snow White's experience.
  • The loving dwarf family illustrates that helping people in need should be a priority in life.
  • Readers learn that not all princesses look alike.
  • The concept of "beauty is within the eye of the beholder" is exemplified by the prince and magic mirror.

Children must grow and overcome then move on through the many difficulties that arise in their lives, some can be the lack of understanding, sympathy and acceptance. For those who are disabled in one way or another, not perfect, this can be an ongoing reality. Jewel Kats has an insight into the world of children who have life stacked against them. This is just one of her retellings of a timeless tale geared to helping others, and if it can be done, righting a wrong."
