The Snow Queen and Other Winter Tales collects 100 fairy and folk tales from around the world that share the winter theme of Hans Christian Andersen's classic story, "The Snow Queen." In addition to tales by Andersen, the Brothers Grimm, Charles Dickens, Louisa May Alcott, and Oscar Wilde, and selections from Andrew Lang's colorful fairy books, this volume includes Alexandre Dumas's The History of a Nutcracker, the story adapted for the famous Christmas ballet, The Nutcracker. Although these tales are set in the heart of winter, they offer reading pleasures that can be enjoyed the whole year round. The Snow Queen and Other Winter Tales is one of Barnes & Noble's Collectible Editions classics. Each volume features authoritative texts by the world's greatest authors in an exquisitely designed bonded-leather binding, with distinctive gilt edging and a ribbon bookmark.

I received this book for Christmas and it is absolutely beautiful! I couldn't be more happy with it. I'm not quite halfway thru but so far I love the stories most of which I had never heard of before. This book has made me want to start my own collection of the books in this series (which I had no idea there were so many of). My only regret is that most of the books I want are now out of stock and only available from private sellers who are asking a ridiculous amount of money for :( I hope B&N decides to reprint a lot of them. I am anxiously waiting to see what books they bring out for 2016, some of the ones I am hoping they do are The Great Gatsby, Robin Hood, The House of the Seven Gables and The Hunger Games.
