The Snow Girl by Robert GiraudOnce there was an old man and woman who didn't have any children. They watch their neighbours' children playing in snow. One day they build a snow-girl in their garden -- and are astonished when she comes to life. But what willl happen when spring comes, and the snow melts? This classic story of dreams coming true is beautifully illustrated by Helene Muller in a gentle watercolour style, while the lyrical text makes the poignancy of the tale accessible for young children.
's Bookwatch, November 2014 'This book is a gentle and beautiful re-telling of the story by Robert Giraud and illustrated by Helene Muller, and I am grateful to Floris for printing it. I really like the lyrical way the story is told, which makes it easy to read,and if you wish to simply tell the story in your own words the pictures support this too. In fact, the illustrations tell the story, just by themselves.'
'We say... a magical tale about dreams coming true that makes a perfect Christmas read.'
'This outstanding, enduring and captivating tale by Robert Giraud has survived for a new generation and is set to work its magic, as an ideal bedtime story... Helene Muller, the French illustrator, adds a further dimension by breathing life into the characters and by embellishing the setting with the beautiful, young snow girl growing up on a farm, surrounded by animals. This is likely to appeal a young audience. The paintings of the characters are full of life and expression and stunning in their own way. This is a little piece of Russian history to be enjoyed. 'Highly recommended.'
