Full-color illustrations dramatically complement a retelling of the classic Andersen story about a one-legged toy soldier and the paper ballerina he admires from afar.

Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875) was born in Odense, Denmark to a poor family. He left home as a 14-year-old to seek his fortune at the theatre in Copenhagen. Andersen began writing plays and poetry before he left for Copenhagen, but it was not until 1835 that he published the first of the fairytales that would bring him international renown. Since then, his over 200 fairytales have enjoyed undiminished popularity, providing the basis for favorite American interpretations such as Disney’s The Little Mermaid.
His most recent books, The Story of Little Babaji and Ouch! are both ALA Notable Children's Books.
