One of the best loved of Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tales, this retelling of The Snow Queen is both delightful and accessible.
These timeless, classic stories have been gloriously illustrated and made accessible for younger children to read alone, or for all the family to enjoy together. This fresh approach brings the stories and their characters to life. There are also special pages giving background detail to set the scene of each story.
When the Snow Queen abducts her friend Kai, Gerda sets out on a perilous and magical journey to find him.
Originally published in 1991, this stunning collection of classic fairy tales by Hans Christian Andersen, illustrated by internationally acclaimed artist Lisbeth Zwerger, has been expanded with three stories. It is also completely redesigned in the same handsome format as the artist’s recently published Alice in Wonderland, A Christmas Carol, and The Wizard of Oz. The artist has selected eleven of her favorite tales-familiar stories such as “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” “The Princess and the Pea,” and “The Nightingale,” as well as lesser-known stories, such as “The Sandman,” “The Jumpers,” and “The Rose Tree Regiment.” All are illustrated with Zwerger’s signature style-marked by wit, grace, elegant simplicity, and insouciant charm.
