"And whenever a splinter flew into someone's eye, that poor person saw the world as an ugly and evil place. Even worse, if a splinter found its way into a person's heart, it would grow colder and colder, until it was frozen like a block of ice ..."
Enter the magical, haunting world of Hans Christian Andersen's classic tale. When the evil Snow Queen enchants a little boy, his friend Gerda journeys to the ends of the earth to free him from her icy spell. Manuel Sumberac's interactive art features fantastic pull-tabs, flaps, wheels, and a glistening pop-up ice palace.
