9780276428302: Fairy Tales of Hans Christian Andersen

"The Fairy Tales of Hans Christian Andersen" is a magnificent collection of 40 of his most magical works, including "The Little Mermaid", "The Princess and the Pea", "The Tinderbox" as well as lesser-known delights such as "The Shepherdess and The Chimney Sweep", "The Teapot and The Goblin at the Grocer's". Unlike many other dull and stilted translations, this collection of Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tales captures the freshness and sparkle of Andersen's original Danish text. Beautifully illustrated with exquisite watercolours and edged and picked out in sumptuous gold, the "Fairy Tales of Hans Christian Andersen" is a book for both young and old to treasure and the perfect gift for children. The "Fairy Tales of Hans Christian Andersen" begins with an introduction that sets Andersen in the context of earlier and contemporary storytellers and those he has influenced, such as J. K. Rowling. This biographical introduction provides a fascinating account of 'the fairytale of my life' as Andersen described it, backed up with photographs and Andersen's own artworks. The publication date of the "Fairy Tales of Hans Christian Andersen" is set to coincide with the 200th anniversary of Andersen's birth.

About the Author:

Hans Christian Andersen (1805 – 1875) was a Danish author and poet, most famous for his fairy tales. Among his best-known stories are "The Steadfast Tin Soldier", "The Snow Queen", "The Little Mermaid", "Thumbelina", "The Little Match Girl", "The Ugly Duckling" and "The Red Shoes". During Andersen's lifetime he was feted by royalty and acclaimed for having brought great enjoyment to a whole generation of children throughout Europe. His fairy tales have been translated into more than 150 languages and they continue to be published in millions of copies all over the world. His fairy tales have inspired the creation of numerous films, theater plays, ballets and film animations.
