The Fir Tree

Hans Christian Andersen (Author) | Sanna Annukka (Illustrator)


4152frzf4cl-_sx282_bo1204203200_Story:

I liked the previous book so much, I had to grab the next available book in this series. Once again, you can’t go wrong with a classic like this. Granted, you should be aware going in that this isn’t a fuzzy modern children’s book. You’re not going to find the Disneyesque fairy tale ending. Instead, you’re going to find something a little more thought- and conversation-provoking.

A beautifully written story  with a clear message. It’s the kind of story that will certainly provide plenty of discussion afterward.

Illustrations:

I hardly need to say more here. Sanna Annukka has again done a beautiful job illustrating this classic story. This book as well as The Snow Queen will make wonderful, gorgeous additions to any library.

Cover:

See above. Beautiful gold foil on rich green fabric. Delicious.
