Item description for The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen & Pavel Tatarnikau...
Overview When the Snow Queen abducts her friend Kay, Gerda sets out on a perilous and magical journey to find him.
A magic mirror in which good and evil are hideously distorted breaks, and its tiny pieces fly all over the world. One piece lodges in the eye of a little boy named Kay, transforming his vision. Another pierces his heart, turning it cold as ice. Kay's playmate Gerda is shocked by the change in her friend, and becomes heartbroken when he disappears. A perilous journey to find Kay takes Gerda to a land locked in ice and snow, where she must outwit the powerful Snow Queen to rescue her beloved friend. The haunting illustrations capture all the mystery and magic of Andersen's longest, most imaginative tale.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Snow Queen?
The Snow Queen is enchanting! Apr 19, 2007
I bought this book after a teacher of mine told us it was her favorite book as a child. She was captivated by Gerda running off to save Kay, and delightfully frightened by the strong Robber girl. I fell in love with the story and the drawings are beautiful, they pull you in just as strongly as the story itself. I bought a copy of this book for her and sent it so she can feel reading it again the same way she did as a girl. If you are looking for a beautiful copy of The Snow Queen, I'm sure you'll love this one.
