Gerda & the Reindeer - Storybook Classics Greeting Card
A heartwarming scene from The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen, as brought to life by Edmund Dulac in Stories from Hans Andersen (1938), "The reindeer did not dare to stop. It ran on till it came to the bush with the red berries. There it put Gerda down, and kissed her on the mouth, while big shining tears trickled down its face." It's a wintertime storybook classic!
