    DescriptionThis is a classic translation of one of the world's greatest fairy tales lavishly illustrated with a sumptuous, wintry feel. When Kay is snatched from his home by the beautiful, cruel Snow Queen, his friend Gerda sets out on an epic journey to rescue him. As she searches, she encounters a series of strangers to whom she tells her tale. Charmed by her story and her innocence, each of them helps Gerda, so that, at last, she is able to find the Snow Queen's icy palace. But, at the end of her epic journey, will she manage to set Kay free?
