I loved the spin that Mike Mullin put on the classic tale of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. In his version we get to meet an 8th Dwarf who has been banished by the others to live beneath the floorboards of their cabin. His crime…apparently simply being different! Being a “moody” night owl with different interests garnered him the name Creepy and a berth in the basement. No socialization…meals passed to him through a hole in the door…one isn’t surprised then at his interactions with “The Maid.”
This short tale is definitely worth the read! A charming bite sized twisted tale with an important social message about being an individual and the effects of being ostracized for it.
