"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.
