About this title

Synopsis:

Mary Engelbreight's whimsical illustrations have made her one of America's most recognized and beloved artists. And now with over 210,000 copies in print, her beautiful retelling of Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen is the perfect marriage of an artist's imagination with that of a storyteller.

Combining Mary Engelbright's clear bright colors and exuberant detail with the classic story about a feisty heroine who will stop at nothing, a conjuror's twists and turns, and the triumph of love and innocence over wickedness and evil, The Snow Queen is pure enchantment, a lovely gift for children and adult Mary Engelbreight fans alike.

Selection of the Literary Guild and Troll Book Club. Suitable for ages 5 and up. 211,000 copies in print.

From the Inside Flap:

Gerda and Kay are the best of friends. They live across an alley from each other and happily chat, play, and tend their lovely rose garden. The children are happy until tragedy strikes Kay. His eye and heart are pierced with fragments of a mirror, and the loving boy Gerda knew vanishes. The Snow Queen has put him under her spell and taken him to her palace of snow and ice. It is up to Gerda to find him and bring him home to the love that awaits him.
In this timeless storybook, Ken Setterington has captured the haunting beauty of the classic tale of love's ability to conquer the coldest, most damaged heart. The book is illustrated with the delicate traditional cut paper art of "scherenschnitt, which Hans Christian Andersen himself practiced.

Store Description

Trilby & Co. Books is located in Northern California. The company was founded years ago by a Shetland Sheepdog named Trilby. Trilby's message to her family was brief and direct - the sale of books would increase disposable income and improve the quality of provisions in her food dish. My name is McTavish (picture at left). I am the current CEO of this company, and I approve of her message. Oh, by the way, my speciality is literature, with an emphasis on first editions and signed books.
