Excerpt: The Snow Queen (Danish: Sneedronningen) is a fairy tale by author Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875). The tale was first published in 1845, and centers on the struggle between good and evil as experienced by a little boy and girl, Kai and Gerda.

They then want to carry the mirror into heaven with the idea of making fools of the angels and God, but the higher they lift it, the more the mirror grins and shakes with delight. It shakes so much that it slips from their grasp and falls back to earth where it shatters into billions of pieces - some no larger than a grain of sand.
