Hans Christian Andersen's classic tale retold for 8 - 11 year olds in the series for Confident Readers. This tale of friendship and loyalty finds Gerda setting off to rescue her friend Kay who has been imprisoned by the wicked Snow Queen in the far North. The atmospheric retelling is wonderfully complemented by the unusual and evocative illustrations by Miss Clara. An excellent book to introduce children to a classic tale whilst fostering their new found reading skills. All these books from BArefoot Books are really attractively produced and a great incentive to read.

I spotted this book just before Christmas, when I was looking for gifts for other people. The illustrations were so pretty and so unusual, that I could not resist buying this for myself.
The classic tale has been retold in a very simple but enchanting way. But with this edition, it is definitely the illustrations which make it stand out. Rather than traditional pictures, Miss Clara uses dolls. She dresses them, then sets the scene before photographing them. It doesn't look false, or staged. Instead it adds an extra little charm to this beautiful little book.

Beautifully illustrated childrens classic. I loved this story as a child and this is the best version I have found for my 6 year old daughter. She loves it too

Bought for my nine-year-old daughter who requested the Barefoot Books version. The illustrations are magical... a real book to treasure.
