The Snow Queen

(this edition: 1993, 48 pages: story originally published 1845)

by Hans Christian Andersen

A very beautiful story for intermediate readers, or younger listeners, this is one of Andersen's longer fairy tales. Classic conflict of good and evil, innocence and experience, loss and recovery of love.

Illustration is from the Mary Engelbreit edition.
