The Snow Queen

Margaret Tarrant

There's been no snow in Vienna yet, and because I am kind of missing it, I reread a favorite childhood story to get the feel again. It's amazing how much gets lost over time. I had forgotten what a long tale it is, and all about the robber girl, the old woman sorceress and the crow. Come to think of it, it's one of the few stories I know in which a female sets out to save a bewitched boy....
