Author: Hans Christian Andersen Narrator: B. J. Harrison Release Date: December 2020

B.J. Harrison reads one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most beloved stories, 'The Snow Queen'. The devil, who has taken the shape of an evil troll, has created a mirror that freezes the heart and turns everything ugly. But the mirror breaks and shard spread out throughout the world.

The famous short story has been turned into innumerable literary, film, television and musical versions since its publication in 1844. Films adaptations include the British animated film The Snow Queen (1995), featuring the voices of Helen Mirren and Hugh Laurie. B. J. Harrison started his Classic Tales Podcast back in 2007, wanting to breathe new life into classic stories. He masterfully plays with a wide array of voices and accents and has since then produced over 500 audiobooks. Now in collaboration with SAGA Egmont, his engaging narration of these famous classics is available to readers everywhere. Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875), aka H. C. Andersen, is a Danish author, poet and playwright. Andersen has written fairy tales and stories known that are popular throughout the world. His fairy tales include The 'Little Mermaid', which has since been turned into the beloved Oscar-winning Disney animation film The Little Mermaid (1989), and 'The Ugly Duckling'. Andersen’s stories are mostly read as children's stories, yet they provide lessons and twists for readers of all ages.
