9780863154997: The Story of the Snow Children


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)

About the Author:

Sibylle von Olfers (1881-1916) uses a blend of natural observation and simple design that critics have compared to the works of Kate Greenaway and Elsa Beskow.

Review:

'A simple but richly imaginative tale with exquisite illustrations ... An old-fashioned delight for new children.' -- Kirkus Book Reviews 'This reissue of a German fairytale from 1905 is a beautiful little book with gorgeous Mabel Lucie Atwell style illustrations. It contains everything you need in a Christmas story: ice castles, fairy-children, and snowmen waiters ... The magical illustrations tell the story perfectly well without the text.' -- Families Magazine, December 2012 'An utterly delightful wintry tale full of whimsy, sprinkled with magic and sparkling with charm ... a perfect stocking filling, especially if you can conjure up some snow for Christmas morning.' -- Playing by the Book, September 2012 'This is a beautifully illustrated and magical tale. A wonderfully enchanting book, a pleasure for children to read and the children listening really did sit open mouthed. The perfect book for a winter's day.' -- Hilary with Isaac (5) and others, Education Otherwise, December 2005 'Poppy's visit to the Snow Queen is told in a comforting manner likely to appeal to the younger listener; the very quaintness and period feel of the pictures add charm and interest. Von Olfers' illustrative style is decorative, with snowdrop panels bordering each page and patterned scenarios of icicles and frost flowers that will captivate viewers of all ages.' -- Gillian Lathey, School Librarian, Winter 2005 'Another delightful seasonal book for young children.' -- Kindling, Autumn 2005 'This magical fairy tale has beautiful plate-style illustrations. A timeless gift.' -- Family Interest magazine, November 2005
