The Fir Tree

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


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.


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.


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