The tale of The Snow Queen is one of the best known children's fairytales written by the outstanding Danish storyteller, Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875). The Snow Queen was first published in 1845. Like all of Andersen's fairy stories, the story of the Snow Queen teaches children good moral values through the triumph of good over evil, proving that love conquers all. This magical adventure is about two poor children, a boy and a girl, who are best friends until the bitter Snow Queen takes Kay away to her palace, and turns his heart to ice. Gerda, determined to find him, is challenged by many obstacles as she embarks on an unforgettable journey to rescue her kidnapped friend.
