Poppy is gazing out of the window at the snow when suddenly she sees that the snowflakes are really snow children, dancing and whirling in the garden. Excitedly Poppy joins them for an adventure in the Snow Queen’s wintry kingdom where she visits a shimmering ice castle and dances at the Princess’s birthday celebrations until it is time for her to go home. Sibylle von Olfers’ vintage stories of nature children have been loved by generations.

The whimsical tales are accompanied by beautiful art nouveau illustrations of characterful creatures, cheerful plants and flowers and magical little folk. This wonderful new edition of The Story of the Snow Children faithfully reproduces Olfers’ classic illustrations in a collectable picture book featuring a hand-crafted design, premium-quality paper and a luxurious cloth spine. The Sibylle von Olfers library also includes mini gift editions and board books for very young children.
