Last year, Laura Barrett was approached by Hachette Children’s group to illustrate the ultimate gift edition of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic tale, “The Snow Queen” with intricate silhouette artwork and a pop-up-and-play theatre finale. Unfold the concertina pages to follow Gerda’s epic journey to the palace of the Snow Queen to rescue her best friend Kai, bewitched by a splinter of ice from an enchanted mirror. Reveal a beautiful pop-up palace on the final page and interact using the stand-up play figures. Discover enchanting silhouette artwork from artist Laura Barrett alongside a simple, evocative retelling of this famous tale.

Feel free to pre-order this gorgeous book this coming October at Waterstones or your favorite place to buy books!
