A deliciously dark fairy-tale about little girl who comes to hate her shadow, seeped in Eastern-European culture. The Hedgehog and in the Fog for a modern generation.
'Through the dark and wolfish woods, through the white and silent snow, lived a small girl called Hortense. Though kind and brave, she was sad as an owl because of one thing . . . Hortense hated her shadow.'
A beautifully illustrated dark fairy tale that will remind you of the fables you read as a child. A treasure not to be missed.
