Book Review - The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen

The whimsical tale is about  two best friends who live next door to each other. One day, the boy becomes cursed and is unable to see goodness in the world. He is kidnapped by the Snow Queen who keeps him prisoner in her ice palace. The little girl goes on the journey to free her friend's cold heart. Will the little girl be able to save her friend? Will the two friends be able to reunite?

As a child, my favorite stories were "The Little Mermaid" and "The Ugly Duckling". When I saw they were releasing a beautiful illustrated copy of the book, I knew I had to get my hands on it. The book was a quick hour read but was very fun and engaging. The artwork took the story to new level.  While, some parts might not be suitable for young readers, I can see how it can be a childhood favorite.

**Disclosure -  I received a free copy of this book*
