Read full description of the books:



Childless and sad, an elderly Russian man and his wife watch the village children playing in the snow. One day they decide to make their own little snow girl. Much to their amazement, her eyes start to shine, her hair turns black, and she comes alive! But, as Little Daughter of the Snow tells them, she isn’t quite like other children: she plays outside all day and night, and eats ice porridge for breakfast. Arthur Ransome’s poignant retelling of the classic Russian fairy tale carries a strong message about the true value of love. Tom Bower’s stylish illustrations update the story for today’s young readers.

Read information about the author

Ebook Little Daughter of the Snow read Online! Arthur Michell Ransome was born in Leeds in 1884 and educated in Windermere and Rugby. His family spent their summers at Nibthwaite, to the south of Coniston Water.

In 1902, Ransome abandoned a chemistry degree to become a publisher's office boy in London. He used this precarious existence to practise writing, producing several minor works before Bohemia in London (1907), a study of London's artistic scene and his first significant book.

An interest in folklore, together with a desire to escape an unhappy first marriage, led Ransome to St Petersburg, where he was ideally placed to observe and report on the Russian Revolution. He knew many of the leading Bolsheviks, including Lenin, Radek, Trotsky and the latter's secretary, Evgenia Shvelpina. These contacts led to persistent but unproven accusations that he "spied" for both the Bolsheviks and Britain.

Ransome married Evgenia and returned to England in 1924. Settling in the Lake District, he spent the late 1920s as a foreign correspondent and highly-respected angling columnist for the Manchester Guardian, before settling down to write Swallows and Amazons and its successors.

Today Ransome is best known for his Swallows and Amazons series of novels, (1931 - 1947). All remain in print and have been widely translated.

Arthur Ransome died in June 1967 and is buried at Rusland in the Lake District.
