The Snow Queen - Audible Freebie

The Snow Queen - Julia Whelan, Hans Christian Andersen

Well, I'm not gonna turn down an audible freebie now am I?

 

Their take:

The Snow Queen will be free until January 31, 2015. Audible's 2014 Narrator of the Year Julia Whelan performs one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved fairy tales, The Snow Queen. This classic tale is a fantastical fable of two dear friends - one of whom goes astray and is literally lost to the north woods, while the other undertakes an epic journey to rescue him. This charming, strange, and wonderful story is a timeless allegory about growing up and the challenges of staying true to one's self, and it served as the wintry inspiration for the blockbuster hit Frozen.
