“The bewitching illustrations in this edition of the classic Hans Christian Andersen story of a friendship that endures over distance, time, and magical enchantments will lead you through dreamy, star-dusted skies and luminous gardens. This is a perfect gift for children or adults.”

Reprinted here for the first time since the 19th century, these color illustrations by T. Pym make the classic Andersen fairy tale even more magical. One of Andersen's best-beloved tales, The Snow Queen""is a story about the strength and endurance of childhood friendship. Gerda's search for her playmate Kay-who was abducted by the Snow Queen and taken to her frozen palace-is brought to life in delicate and evocative illustrations.
About the Author
Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875) was a Danish writer who gained fame with his fairy tales, such as "The Ugly Duckling" and "The Little Mermaid," which were cleverly written to disguise the tales' sophisticated moral teachings.
