Description

Hans Christian Andersen was the profoundly imaginative writer and storyteller who revolutionized literature for children. He gave us the now standard versions of some traditional fairy tales-with an anarchic twist-but many of his most famous tales sprang directly from his imagination. The thirty stories here range from exuberant early works such as "The Tinderbox" and "The Emperor's New Clothes" through poignant masterpieces such as "The Little Mermaid" and "The Ugly Duckling," to more subversive later tales such as "The Ice maiden" and "The Wood Nymph."

About Author

Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875) wrote more than 150 haunting tales. Many were based on folktales and many were his own original creations. Tiina Nunnally is an award-winning translator of Scandinavian fiction, including Sigrid Undset's Kristin Lavransdatter. Jackie Wullschlager's books include a critically acclaimed biography of Hans Christian Andersen. She is the chief art correspondent for Financial Times.
