The Wild Swans [With Booklet] Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

In the classic Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale The Wild Swans, a princess rescues her 11 brothers from a transformative spell cast by their wicked stepmother. This story of enchantment is conveyed here in a remarkable and unusual way — as a wordless unfolding accordion board book with a series of beautiful illustrations that tell the tale. A separate booklet included contains text to accompany the story. This stunning edition captivates lovers of fairy tales and folklore who are familiar with the tale, as well as introduces new generations to the story.

About the Author

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.
