Item description for The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen & Pavel Tatarnikau...

When the Snow Queen abducts her friend Kay, Gerda sets out on a perilous and magical journey to find him.

Publishers Description
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?

Lovely, But Some Parts Left Out  Apr 22, 2007
I loved The Snow Queen as a child, and so I bought this version to read to my children. They loved it, and we all found the illustrations beautiful. However, I had a nagging feeling that something was missing, and had to search on the Internet for an unadapted version of the original translation by Mrs. H. P. Paull to confirm my suspicion. Most significantly, the entire conversation that Gerda has with the flowers in the garden is cut out, and while perhaps the plot does not suffer, there is something so mystical in those conversations that I remembered them more than I remembered many other elements of the story. I suspect the editor removed them because of the images of death (the Hindu widow on the pyre, the black dog kicked by the kids on the swing), as a later reference to the death of the black crow who guided Gerda to the prince and princess was also cut out. It annoys me that children's book authors these days feel they have to bend over backwards to shield children from death. I personally believe the more we try to hide death away from them, the harder they will be able to deal with death when they do encounter it. I would have preferred that the editor left the story intact so that I could share it in its entirety with my children.
