Jewel Kats Publishes First Vitiligo Fairy Tale in Children’s Literature

 

Loving Healing Press of Ann Arbor, MI, announces the release of Snow White’s Seven Patches: A Vitiligo Fairy Tale by award-winning author Jewel Kats.Snow White cover

Picking the classical theme of good-conquering-evil, Kats has created the first vitiligo fairy tale in the world of children’s books. A modern-day story, Snow White’s Seven Patches: A Vitiligo Fairy Tale carries the age-old ingredients of a magic mirror, poisonous apple, dwarfs, and romance. What makes this adaptation unique is the character of 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. And when the good mirror finally speaks the truth, everything falls apart.

In this colorfully illustrated story book:

  • 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.

Snow White’s Seven Patches is book #3 in the Fairy Ability Tales series following The Princess and the Ruby: An Autism Fairy Tale and Cinderella’s Magical Wheelchair.

Praise for Snow White’s Seven Patches

“Life is not really perfect, even if you are so-called normal. 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.”
– J. D. Holiday, author, illustrator, host of Book Garden Radio

“Jewel Kats entertains and engages, highlighting significant issues that resonate with children and adults alike. In ‘Snow White’s Seven Patches’, Jewel emphasizes how to overcome adversity with creativity. She encourages children to maintain a healthy perspective about their physical appearance. Jewel reminds us that despite wickedness, we can move on and get about the business of life, letting serendipity take us to wonderful places in hope. And just maybe what we think we might have, we will be able to achieve.”

– Carole Di Tosti, novelist, reviewer for Blogcritics.com
