I love the pictures in this book. The Snow Queen and the Snow Princess are really beautiful because they have crystal crowns and necklaces and the princess has crystal shoes.

Synopsis


Poppy is gazing out of the window at the snow when, all of a sudden, she sees that the snowflakes are really little Snow Children dancing and whirling in the garden. Soon, they whisk her away to the Snow Queen’s wintry kingdom.

From the author of The Story of the Root Children, here is another classic children’s story with beautiful illustrations in the art nouveau style.

(Age 3–5)

Available as both full-size and mini (6½ x 4¾ inches) editions.
