The Amazing Paper Cuttings of Hans Christian Andersen

by

The Amazing Paper Cuttings of Hans Christian Andersen Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hans Christian Andersen, the Danish storyteller whose fairy tales are known all over the world, was also a gifted artist. He made hundreds, perhaps thousands, of paper cuttings of swans, clowns, toy theaters, windmills, angels, and other whimsical images. Often he made the paper cuttings while telling a story, then gave them to the children listening to him. In this inspired biography, Beth Wagner Brust tells the story of Andersen as an artist who used his many talents to escape the poverty into which he was born and who entertained others with not only his famous stories but also his innovative and original art.

About the Author

Beth Wagner Brust first discovered Andersen's paper cuttings at the Hans Christian Andersen Museum in Odense, Denmark. When she learned that many of them had been made as presents for young people, she decided to tell the story of Andersen as an artist. She lives in California.
