The Story of the Snow Children: Mini Edition

The Story of the Snow Children: Mini Edition

By Sibylle von Olfers

"A simple but richly imaginative tale in a tiny book with exquisite illustrations ... An old-fashioned delight for new children."–Kirkus Reviews

"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

"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."— Families Magazine

Poppy is gazing out of the window at the snow when suddenly she sees that the snowflakes are really 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, this is another classic children's story with beautiful illustrations in the art-nouveau style.
