Rating: 4/5 "I really liked it!"
I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
Gorgeously packaged with intricate illustrations from Finnish illustrator, Sanna Annukka, this new edition of Hans Christian Andersen's well-loved fairy tale, The Snow Queen, is the perfect holiday gift for adults and children alike.
Hans Christian Andersen's magical tale of friendship and adventure is retold through the beautiful and intricate illustrations of Finnish illustrator Sanna Annukka. Cloth-bound in deep blue, with silver foil embellishments, The Snow Queen is elevated from a children's book to a unique work of art. It is an ideal gift for people of all ages.
I absolutely loved this book. As the description explains, the illustrator took the original fairy tale, but added her wonderfully detailed illustrations. Without those illustrations, I probably would have rushed through it. With them, I found myself stopping to admire the enthralling artwork. Annukka's artwork definitely works to bring the original fairy tale to life.
