The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen Illustrated by Sanna Annukka (Book Review)

*Disclosure of material connection- I received a copy of the book from the publisher via Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest thoughts. I was not required to write a positive review and all opinions stated are 100% my own.

About the book-

Gorgeously packaged with intricate illustrations from Finnish illustrator, Sanna Annukka, this new edition of Hans Christian Andersen's well-loved fairy tale, The Snow Queen, is the perfect holiday gift for adults and children alike.

Hans Christian Andersen's magical tale of friendship and adventure is retold through the beautiful and intricate illustrations of Finnish illustrator Sanna Annukka. Cloth-bound in deep blue, with silver foil embellishments, The Snow Queen is elevated from a children's book to a unique work of art. It is an ideal gift for people of all ages.

My thoughts-

I am a sucker for cloth-bound books so I was in love with this the minute I saw it. I think it is important to have old classics around because I enjoy them and also because I feel like these are the types of books I want to have on my bookshelves for my kids to read. This is an abridged version of Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen, a collection of 7 stories about the ice queen. The biggest draw of this version of the book are the beautiful illustrations. Bold colors and intricate patterns bring to the stories to life in a whimsical fashion. The edition of The Snow Queen would make a perfect gift for the young and the young at heart!
