Wow, I opened up this book and it took my breath away...the illustrations are so beautiful...well done, Miss Clara! I can't wait to get stuck into this magical, mystical children's story with a message... :)

This story did not disappoint. The fairy tale has meaningful and symbolic undertones: perfect for parents whom wish to fill their children's heads with truth. The illustrations are whimsical, beautiful, and captivating.

With a beautiful fairy-tale, exquisite illustrations and a heart-felt mess
I had to read this because Frozen was originated of the story the Snow Queen. It was very interesting to read. I love reading fairy tales and I loved it, with the twists and turns, don't forget the loyalty Gerna (Sorry if I spelled her name wrong) showed to Kay.

Barefoot Books has created a series of gorgeously illustrated retold fairy tales for younger readers. This is the first I've seen and it is utterly gorgeous. The story is chapter book, but still familiar version of the original Snow Queen. What makes it remarkable are the wonderful illustrations by Miss Clara. WOW!! I am going to start collecting the books in this series for my classroom.

I love Barefoot Books, and was especially thrilled with the beautiful artwork throughout this great book. My only bit of sadness that holds back the fifth star is that the book is too short.

This was actually rather well done (beautiful illustrations too) and didn't compromise on the menace and sense of hidden mysticism of the original. My 5yo loved having it read to her.
It was kind of random and even for a fairy tale, a bit unbelievable.
