Terra Bidlespacher the artist for The Daughter of Frost Kickstarter project sent me the first finished page for this whimsical Fairy Tale. It is the Woodcutter and his wife making a snow family as Jack Frost looks on.

Together in the morning light, they rolled snowballs and built three snow people. One was the Woodcutter, the other was his wife, and the smaller was their snow child that they never had. Arm in arm they looked at the snow family and smiled, lost in the memory of what they might have had. The wife cried small tears of sadness. “I am sorry my dear husband, I know you mean well. I just wish for a child so I can see you glad.”

The Woodcutter smiled and kissed his wife on the check, “Do not worry my dear wife, we have lived a good life and one day we will get our reward. I love you deeply and wish for no more.”

Aneira the Daughter of Frost by Terra Bidlespacher

Aneira the Daughter of Frost by Terra Bidlespacher

Once Upon a Time in a land far far away the Fairy of Spring and Jack Frost had a daughter they named Aneira. Who they gave to a childless Woodcutter and his wife so their daughter could experience the love and affection of mortal parents. This is her story, a classic fairy tale of winter, of love, of good, of evil and the power of innocence…

What is the Daughter of Frost?
The Daughter of Frost was written for my beautiful Daughter, so I could read to her a story that started with Once Upon a Time. She really enjoyed the story, and after awhile it became part of my original all ages fantasy fairy tale series called The Wonder Tales.

I want to do something really special with this story, I’ve recruited the services of the amazing almost ethereal Terra Bidlespacher of White Stag Art to help me illustrate this tale with some magical, whimsical illustrations. With her help I hope to turn The Daughter of Frost into fully illustrated fairy tale book, the sort of book we turned the pages of when we were young, that fired our imaginations to the magic and wonder of the world just beyond our fingers. A story that can be treasured and shared with your kids. Help this story get illustrated by helping it launch on Kickstarter at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/altworld/the-daughter-of-frost-a-fairy-tale-written-for-my

Something special may yet come this way as we look at the art inspired by The Daughter of Frost
