Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhyme-Snow White
Well, this was very challenging. I'm not really sure if I got this right or not. It started out as a spread (I think) and ended up looking more like a cover. Oh well...
I tried to make the Queen not just intimidating, but also slightly babelicious.
I hope I succeeded in my interpretation.
This is the part I chose to illustrate:
Then suddenly, one awful day,
She heard the Magic Mirror say,
'From now on, Queen, you're Number Two.
Snow-White is prettier than you!'
The Queen went absolutely wild.
She yelled, 'I'm going to scrag that child!
'I'll cook her flaming goose! I'll skin'er!
'I'll have her rotten guts for dinner!'
She called the Huntsman to her study.
She shouted at him, 'Listen buddy!'
'You drag that filthy girl outside,
'and see that you take her for a ride!
'Thereafter slit her ribs apart
'And bring me back her bleeding heart!'
Have a great day, all.
