The Snow Queen and Other Winter Tales collects 100 fairy and folk tales from around the world that share the winter theme of Hans Christian Andersen's classic story, "The Snow Queen."

In addition to tales by Andersen, the Brothers Grimm, Charles Dickens, Louisa May Alcott, and Oscar Wilde, and selections from Andrew Lang's colorful fairy books, this volume includes Alexandre Dumas's The History of a Nutcracker, the story adapted for the famous Christmas ballet, The Nutcracker.

Although these tales are set in the heart of winter, they offer reading pleasures that can be enjoyed the whole year round.
