The Snow Queen illustrated by Bagram Ibatoulline was released last year and I never shared it on the blog. Many versions of Snow Queen are running low on inventory this season since there is a high demand for anything even remotely related to Disney's Frozen and ABC's Once Upon a Time. Snow Queen is one of my favorite fairy tale for illustration. All of the snow and ice make for some beautifully stunning art. This book is no exception.
Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen, the classic tale of friendship, love, and bravery, is beautifully retold with lavish illustrations by master artist Bagram Ibatoulline.
Best friends Kai and Gerda would do anything for each other. When Kai starts to behave cruelly and disappears, Gerda sets out on an epic quest to save Kai from the evil Snow Queen. But can Gerda break the Snow Queen's enchantment and complete the final task?
Full of magic and wonder, this new picture book will delight fans of beloved classics like "Thumbelina," "The Princess and the Pea," and "The Little Mermaid."
