The Snow Queen is one of Andersen’s most affecting stories. Little Kay is enticed away from his home by the Snow Queen who traps him in her palace in the cold far north. His loyal friend Gerda goes on a long and dangerous journey, overcoming many obstacles to rescue him.
Presented alongside this classic children’s story are four other entertaining and moving tales from the imagination of Hans Christian: The Leap-Frog, The Old House, The Snowman and The Daisy.
