Abstract:

Childless and sad, an elderly Russian man and his wife watch the village children playing in the snow. One day they decide to make their own little snow girl. Much to their amazement, her eyes start to shine, her hair turns black, and she comes alive! But, as Little Daughter of the Snow tells them, she isn't quite like other children: she plays outside all day and night, and eats ice porridge for breakfast. Arthur Ransome's poignant retelling of the classic Russian fairy tale carries a strong message about the true value of love. Tom Bower's stylish illustrations update the story for today's young readers.
