The Snow Queen is one of my favorite fairy tales. It features a relatively strong female lead and a villain that is menacing and violent.
As with any of these ancient fairy tales, there are a lot of plot holes and issues with the narrative. This edition does what it can with the beautifully moody illustrations to provide a cohesive whole that while not completely succeeding, allows the reader to become more immersed in the feel of the story. This is definitely an interesting version to share with children or fanciful adults in your life.
