Raven Child and the Snow-Witch by Linda Sunderland

Anya lives with her mother and father in the shadow of the icy glacier where the Snow-Witch reigns. Every spring, Anya's mother journeys to the glacier to pick the blue gentian flowers that grow there. But this time, she does not return. She has been captured by the Snow-Witch and imprisoned in the ice. Anya and her father set off with the ravens to rescue her. It's a treacherous journey, and there is no knowing what they will find; but the strength of Anya's love conquers all; the Snow-Witch is defeated and Anya's mother is saved. Linda Sunderland recently gained an MA in Creative Writing (Contemporary Poetry). Raven Child and the Snow-Witch is her first picture book. Daniel is a hugely talented illustrator and has published many books including The Little Red Riding Hood for Harper Collins, New York.
