Review:

"Adults and children alike need the actual Andersen, here made brilliantly available by the Franks." --Harold Bloom, editor of Stories and Poems for Extremely Intelligent Children of All Ages.

"This is the real Andersen, restored to life, in the flavor of Danish. . .here at last you will find him." --Garrison Keillor

"The Franks" edition finally sets the stories straight and . . . clarifies the tale most often told wrong--Andersen"s own life story." --Elise Soukup

"[The Franks] have stripped away the florid Victorianism of the previous translations...[and] have widened the scope of Andersen's oeuvre." --Heather Caldwell, Bookforum

"The Franks' edition finally sets the stories straight and . . . clarifies the tale most often told wrong--Andersen's own life story." --Elise Soukup

"ÝThe Franks¨ have stripped away the florid Victorianism of the previous translations...Ýand¨ have widened the scope of Andersen's oeuvre." --Heather Caldwell, Bookforum

"The Franks' edition finally sets the stories straight and . . . clarifies the tale most often told wrong-- Andersen' s own life story." --Elise Soukup

"The Franks& #39; edition finally sets the stories straight and . . . clarifies the tale most often told wrong& mdash; Andersen& #39; s own life story." --Elise Soukup

"A superb book of Andersen's tales . . . it will be difficult for other commemorative editions to match this publication." --Jack Zipes

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4-Matthews has simplified the story lines and modernized the language of 11 familiar Andersen tales. His style is conversational and lively, and he avoids the use of slang. Snow's cartoon illustrations create a feeling of bumptious good humor and are well integrated throughout the text, varying from small pictures in the middle of a page, to full-page spreads. This lighthearted approach of both text and pictures is somewhat at odds with the irony and tragedy of tales such as "The Pig Boy," "The Little Mermaid," and "The Steadfast Tin Soldier." It works best with the more amusing "Princess and the Pea" and "The Emperor's New Clothes." Unfortunately, the emperor is shown on the cover, the title page, and in the book wearing boxer shorts, though he is referred to as naked, a minor distortion, yet one that stands out. In condensing the tales, the layers of meaning and emotion in the originals are lost. Still, Matthew's edition, with its large clear type and generous margins, is open and inviting. It will attract young readers to the tales, and it does provide a serviceable first reading of the familiar classics.
