The Snow Queen (Kenny)
This version of The Snow Queen is a fairy tale in seven stories. It begins with an evil magician, who creates a mirror with the magic power of taking anything good and shrinking it to next to nothing. Beautiful landscapes look like deserted car parks. Nice people become nasty. Gerda finds the mirror and accidentally drops it, shattering it into a million pieces. Each little piece of the mirror held the same power as the full magic mirror. Unfortunately, Gerda’s best friend Kai gets a piece of the mirror stuck in his eye and in his ear, and becomes cruel. When Kai meets the snow queen he is in awe. She kisses him, and they disappear into the sky together.
