"In 1878, with the publication of her first picture book Under the Window, Kate Greenaway became a household name in both England and American, and her reputation as one of England's greatest children's book illustrators remains as strong today as in her own time. Usually Greenaway illustrated her own texts, but towards the end of her life she began work on one of the greatest fairy tales of world literature. When she died in 1901 she left a series of pencil studies for a group of twelve illustrations intended for a new edition of Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen."
