When a boy is cursed with an inability to perceive goodness, a young girl must go on a lonely quest to restore his heart and vision and free him from captivity in the palace of the Snow Queen. Few works of children's literature have had as deep and lasting an impact as Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen, which has won the hearts of young readers for almost two centuries, and inspired works as diverse as Disney's Frozen and C.S. Lewis's The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. This version combines the classic English translation of H.B. Paull with the dramatic and beautiful engravings of Vilhelm Pedersen from the original, Danish edition.
