Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hans Christian Andersen and Mary Englebreit. A renowned spinner of tales and an artist with an ever-growing and ever-more-adoring audience. Now in a perfect marriage of imaginations and sensibilities comes Mary Engelbreit's first children's book, a loving rendition of Hans Christian Andersen's THE SNOW QUEEN.

This favorite story from the author of "The Little Mermaid," "The Emperor's New Clothes," "The Ugly Duckling," and dozens of other fairy tales known to generations of readers finds a new spirit in Mary Engelbreit's illustrations. Her warmhearted style is reminiscent of old-fashioned storybooks. The colors are luminous, the design ornate, the mood by turns tender and exuberant. Each painting is a window to a dazzling world where a child can get happily lost.

With its feisty heroine, Gerda, who will stop at nothing, its talking crows and conjuring old crone, its mysterious Snow Queen, and its triumph of love and innocence over wickedness and cynicism, THE SNOW QUEEN is a classic to be rediscovered.

Synopsis:

Mary Engelbreight's whimsical illustrations have made her one of America's most recognized and beloved artists. And now with over 210,000 copies in print, her beautiful retelling of Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen is the perfect marriage of an artist's imagination with that of a storyteller.

Combining Mary Engelbright's clear bright colors and exuberant detail with the classic story about a feisty heroine who will stop at nothing, a conjuror's twists and turns, and the triumph of love and innocence over wickedness and evil, The Snow Queen is pure enchantment, a lovely gift for children and adult Mary Engelbreight fans alike.

Selection of the Literary Guild and Troll Book Club. Suitable for ages 5 and up. 211,000 copies in print.
