I had never read this novella before, but of course I'd heard of the author! It was so, so sad, but had a great lesson in it. The cover is absolutely gorgeous and draws you in. It's an easy read and one I think children and adults will like. I would recommend this book. 4 out of 5 stars. ( )

As you get older, there comes a point when you look back at childhood stories and see that there’s something not right about many of them. Hans Christian Andersen’s tales are like this – there is something dark and deceptively twisted. Since these particular two share a similar new publication, I am reviewing them together. “The Snow Queen”: in which Gerda sets out to find her lost best friend Kay, and “The Fir Tree”: in which a sentient fir tree gets removed from its forest home and is introduced to fire. Rather than shortening their summary, I will focus on some common elements and what sets the new releases apart (the artwork).

Fairy tales in general have a nice simplicity to them, where all the loose ends gets tied up, and can be read or told in a short amount of time. Hans’s stories feature talking plants and animals, common in fantasy, but still absurd. Often there is a benevolent grandmother, and strangers that the protagonists shouldn’t talk to, let alone follow. You have to wonder sometimes, who was he writing for? Yet, we still read and celebrate these stories so many generations later. “The Snow Queen,” where a mirror made by the devil distorts everyone’s vision, was an inspiration for the movie “Frozen.” The best adaptation though, in my opinion, is GrooveLily’s “Striking 12,” their take on “The Little Match Girl,” which gave me a new appreciation for this Danish writer. “The Snow Queen” is unusual in having a relatively happy ending; the poor, lonesome “Fir Tree” is left to its fate, while its human users are oblivious to its wooden feelings.

The new artwork, by Sanna Annukka, complements the simplicity of the stories, and is really nice to look at on its own. Appearing very Scandinavian, there are solid backgrounds and only a few choice colors. The images are composed largely of triangles, parallel patterns, and symmetry, and do not overlap with the words. The pages are much taller than they are wide. As I read an e-galley, I cannot comment further on physical attributes of these books, but can say that if you like Hans Christian Andersen, you will enjoy these. They might be best suited for Christmastime, but as winter is finally over, they can be read at any time of the year.

The Fir Tree, illustrated by Nancy Ekholm Burkert.

Originally published in 1844, as part of Hans Christian Andersen's New Fairy Tales, The Fir Tree - like The Little Mermaid and The Snow Queen - is one of the author's original creations. The story of a young tree who is unable to appreciate present blessings, because he is always looking forward to future glories, it displays that unmistakable melancholy found in so many of Andersen's creations, and concludes with the little fir's sad demise.

Nancy Ekholm Burkert's gorgeous full-color brush and ink paintings, and black and white drawings in pencil, add to the emotional weight of this retelling, emphasizing the beauty of the forest, the magic of Christmas night, and the loneliness of the tree's final days. Visually appealing, this is one I would recommend to all Hans Christian Andersen readers... ( )

The Fir Tree, illustrated by Bernadette Watts.

Bernadette Watts - who has also illustrated Hans Christian Andersen's The Ugly Duckling and The Snow Queen - turns her attention to his melancholy arboreal "biography" in this lovely picture-book. Never content with his present lot, always looking ahead and wanting more, the titular fir tree is unable to appreciate the true meaning of the events of his life, from being made into a Christmas decoration, to being stored in the attic.

After finding Watts' interpretation of The Snow Queen rather lackluster, I wasn't sure I would care for her rendition of The Fir Tree. I am happy to report, however, that I really enjoyed her illustrations here, finding them quite well-suited to the tale. From the exuberant hare jumping over the tiny snow-bound fir, to the bedraggled, dried-out tree stacked in the corner of an attic, Watts' pictures capture the emotions of the tale: its sense of beauty, sadness, and most of all, regret. I'm glad I gave her work a second chance, and am even wondering if I was too hard on her efforts for The Snow Queen: it's possible her edition simply suffered in comparison to the Vladyslav Yerko edition...
