Pushkin to publish The Snow Queen colouring book

Pushkin Press is set to publish its first colouring book in January.

A colouring in version of Hans Christian-Andersen’s The Snow Queen has been created by designer Helen Crawford-White for Pushkin.

Crawford-White also designed the cover of Pushkin’s October release of the original story.

Adam Fraudenheim, publisher at Pushkin, said of the full version: “This brand new translation by Misha Hoekstra of the classic fairy tale is illustrated by Lucie Arnoux and went down a storm with retailers even before publication.”

The colouring in version will feature one page of story alongside a full page of illustrations to colour in.

The book will be officially available from 7th January in a £9.99 paperback although Pushkin plans to release the title immediately after the books are received in its warehouse, the company said.
