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.
In one of Andersen's most beautiful stories, the boy Kay leaves his companion Gerda to go far north with the evil, cold-hearted Snow Queen. Gerda goes in search of Kay, encountering many adventures, but eventually finds the boy and melts the ice in his heart with her tears. Watts' illustrationsdespite her lovely, unpretentious characters, detailed renderings of simple interiors and pastoral exteriorsfail to capture the spirit of this dark, mysterious story; the powerful telling loses impact in the sweet, unthreatening pictureseven those of ominous events. Ages 5-8.
