The Snow QueenThe Snow Queen is probably one of the most famous stories written by Hans Christian Andersen. It was first published in 1845. This story is about the struggle between good and evil, and the courage that is required to do the right thing. The story is also about friendship. The original story was quite long and comprised seven mini stories, and is considered by scholars, critics, and readers alike as one of his best.

Kay, a little boy who lives in a large city lives across the street from Gerda, whom he loves as his sister. He falls victim to the splinters of the Snow Queen’s troll-mirror. Gerda, the heroine of the tale, succeeds in finding and saving Kay from the Snow Queen. When Gerda loves Kay in the Snow Queen’s palace, he is freed from the Snow Queen’s influence and that of the evil mirror.

The Snow Queen emphasizes the enjoyment in art and introduces other cultures. For example, students in warmer climates may struggle to understand what it means to have cool or cold weather all of the time.
