9780744520385: Snow Queen

Audible's 2014 Narrator of the Year Julia Whelan performs one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved fairy tales, The Snow Queen.

This classic tale is a fantastical fable of two dear friends—one of whom goes astray and is literally lost to the north woods, while the other undertakes an epic journey to rescue him. This charming, strange, and wonderful story is a timeless allegory about growing up and the challenges of staying true to one's self, and it served as the wintry inspiration for the blockbuster hit Frozen.

From the Inside Flap:

Gerda and Kay are the best of friends. They live across an alley from each other and happily chat, play, and tend their lovely rose garden. The children are happy until tragedy strikes Kay. His eye and heart are pierced with fragments of a mirror, and the loving boy Gerda knew vanishes. The Snow Queen has put him under her spell and taken him to her palace of snow and ice. It is up to Gerda to find him and bring him home to the love that awaits him.
In this timeless storybook, Ken Setterington has captured the haunting beauty of the classic tale of love's ability to conquer the coldest, most damaged heart. The book is illustrated with the delicate traditional cut paper art of "scherenschnitt, which Hans Christian Andersen himself practiced.
