A bot-building princess engineers her own happy ending in this futuristic fairytale, a follow-up to the acclaimed Interstellar Cinderella.

Once upon a planetoid
surrounded by her friends,
a girl, Jo Bright, loved building bots
from scraps and odds and ends!

Snow White gets a stellar upgrade in this clever retelling with a truly inventive heroine. With wit, bravery, and some spare circuit boards, Jo will foil the queen, befriend a dragon, and build herself a celestially happy ending of her own. From the team that created the acclaimed Interstellar Cinderella and Reading Beauty comes another funny and empowering fairytale that's out of this world.

A STELLAR ROLE MODEL FOR GIRLS: This uniquely feminist retelling of Snow White, in which the princess is an engineer and inventor, encourages girls to see themselves as the heroines of their own stories.

Praise For…

?- “Hunt’s rich, saturated artwork moves between Jo’s and the queen’s perspectives, building on Underwood’s rhythmic hooks and repetition in the narrative to bring an innovative take to the familiar tale…. A delightful picture book for a rambunctious storytime, this also encourages viewers to use creative thinking and problem solving to invent their own happily ever after.” - Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, starred review¬†
