Product description

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.
