The Story of the Snow Children - mini edition
Mini edition of the classic winter tale with art nouveau illustrations. Perfect for fans of Cicely Mary Barker's Flower Fairies.
Poppy is watching the snow fall outside her window when she realises the snowflakes are really snow children, dancing and swirling in the air. They ask Poppy to join them and whisk her away to the Snow Queen's wintery kingdom. In the sparkling ice palace, she enjoys a feast served by snowmen and dances merrily with the snow princess. And when she is tired and homesick, the Snow Queen sends Poppy safely home to her mother on a silver sleigh pulled by snow bears.
