Raven Child and the Snow Witch
Anya lives in the Snow Garden with her mother and her father, who is trying to invent a machine to enable him to fly. One day, when Anya's mother is picking gentian flowers in the snow, a broken-winged Raven watches as she is taken prisoner by the Snow Witch.
Finding that Anya's mother is not the only one who has been trapped in the glacier, Anya and her father pursue the Snow Witch, but it is Anya who must go into the ice herself and face her deepest fears.
A stunningly illustrated story, reminiscent of Hand Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen, Anya's quest to find her mother and her befriending of animal friends along the way is a mythic tale you'll want to return to every winter.
