If you get this book thinking you are getting the one written by Patricia St. John, you will be disappointed. It is a revision by Mary Mills. I can only second what other one star reviewers have said. This is an uninspired, pedantic travesty and so unnecessary. The original book is highly readable and understandable. Even pre readers could enjoy hearing St. John's book read to them.

I'm sure Ms. Mills meant well and was no doubt instructed to simplify, but it was an ill-conceived project. Perhaps if there were alternative versions we could each choose what we like. It is so sad that the original writer's work has been completely replaced by this.
This is a revised addition. Nowhere in the description does it say that. Seriously, it’s a lot different than the original, stay away. I’ve never written a one star review, but the ommission that this book was revised by someone other than the author is extremely annoying. I’m not returning, I’m just going to leave this review here to deter anyone from buying a revised book, especially when it isn’t sold as such. Go somewhere else to buy the real version of this book and save $7.
This book will not disappoint. My mother read it to us kids on more then one occasion as we were growing up. It's a timeless tale of revenge and forgiveness that one will not quickly forget. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It should be in every library and part of every child's memories.
Didn't realize it was an edited, paired down version
It's hard to find stories these days that are as deep with respect to life's challenges and the need for spiritual grounding. Treasures of the Snow shows how children find strength to cope with death, injury, and loss as well as the joys of family, friends, and accomplishments. Well-written, too. Highly recommend.
The unedited version is much better than the edited one, but we still love the message in both.
This has been one of my favorite books since childhood. It is reasonably realistic and has a great plot. It is set in Switzerland. The main character doesn't start out doing and thinking the right things, but gradually learns about the love of Christ and how she, too, can love and forgive. A grandparent nearby would be helpful as the setting is in an era that is significantly different than that of today's child.
Treasures of the Snow is one of THE best books for kids. Every adult I know that has read it has loved it also. I highly recommend it. It is wholesome, touching, and timeless. I have read it to my kids numerous times and they never tired of it. They would always say: One more chapter, Please!
