"The Snow Queen", one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved fairy tales, is narrated by Joanna Lumley, OBE for the GivingTales project.
This story is about love between friends. A little girl named Gerda was getting ready to find her friend Kai who disappeared. She crossed forests, mountains and hills to come to the Snow Kingdom and bring her friend back home. She confronts Snow Queen and shows that friendship can be permanent and last forever. You should also cherish your friends because they are the ones who are here in times of need. This wonderful story is a timeless allegory about growing up and the challenges of staying true to one self, and it even served as inspiration for the blockbuster hit "Frozen".
"The Snow Queen" was released on 21st of December, 1844. The original title in Danish: "Sneedronningen".
