In the story, Kay and Gerda have a wonderful friendship until fragments of a magic mirror fall into both Kay's eye and his heart, making him pessimistic and mischievous, and turning him away from Gerda. Later he disappears when he fastens his small sled to a stranger's large one and is towed out of the town. The stranger turns out to be the Snow Queen his grandmother has told him about, who freezes his heart, makes him forget his home, and keeps him in her palace of ice.
After Kay's disappearance Gerda sets out to find and rescue him and has many adventures. She is detained by a lonely old woman, helped by a kind Prince and Princess, and captured by a wild band of robbers. She receives help from many animals, including a pair of crows, and a reindeer who carries her north into Lapland (a region of Finland and Sweden) and then into Finnmark (a county in northeastern Norway). After finally finding her friend, Gerda faces another challenge: she must make Kay remember her and melt his heart, which has been turned to a lump of ice.
In his simple, straight-forward style Hans Christian Andersen creates an enchanting (though totally unrealistic) tale. The story is a good illustration of the values of courage, loyalty, and love.
