The adventures of Gerda in search of Kai (based on the fairy tale by H. K. Andersen “The Snow Queen”
Andersen Hans Christian

The right to happiness can only be earned by genuine unselfishness and true love.X. K. Andersen

I really love the fairy tales of the Danish storyteller X. K. Andersen, I always admire the heroes of his fairy tales, kind and honest, courageous and courageous.

I especially like the fairy tale "The Snow Queen" and its heroine - little Gerda, who fights to free her named brother Kai from the evil spells of the Snow Queen.

The Snow Queen has kidnapped Kai. The desire to find him and save him makes Gerda hit the road. In search of a friend, Gerda had to go through many adventures. Looking for Kai, Gerda came to the house of a kind sorceress. The old woman wanted to keep the girl, but Gerda leaves the hospitable house with a beautiful garden to continue searching for Kai. Even the fact that she is dressed in summer does not stop her, and it is already late autumn in the yard. A kind raven helps the girl get into the palace. But Kai was not there. Failure did not stop Gerda. The courageous girl continued her search for her friend. Having learned about the sad story of Gerda, the princess ordered to give her a warm fur coat, a hat, a muff, horses and a golden carriage. Now Gerda could move on. But robbers attacked the carriage towards the forest. Gerda is saved by a little robber, the daughter of the chieftain. Wayward the unbridled little robber was not left indifferent to the fate of Gerda. She releases her beloved deer with Gerda so that he can take the girl to the North, the second kingdom of the Snow Queen.

Tired, frozen Gerda enters the realm of the Snow Queen. Here she saw a cold and indifferent Kai with a frozen heart. Gerda rushed to him and wept bitterly. Her hot tears melted the ice in the boy's heart. The Snow Queen has lost her power and control over him. Gerda saved Kai. Together they went home.

Everyone Gerda met wanted to help the brave little girl. Gerda's love awakened good feelings in the souls of all the people she met, Flowers, birds and animals. Gerda's selfless love was so strong that it overcame the most difficult obstacles and defeated Kai's spiritual coldness.
