Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Little Mermaid is just one jewel in this enchanting collection of twenty stories by the father of the modern fairy tale, Hans Christian Andersen.

Whether you prefer laughing aloud at the Emperor in his "new clothes" or sighing as the Little Mermaid pines for her human prince, one thing is certain–this is a book that will be read again and again!

Synopsis:

Where else can you find a near replica of the first edition of this enchanting collection of over 50 classic fairy tales from the masterful Hans Christian Andersen? Children and adults alike will enjoy timeless favorites including "The Little Mermaid, " "The Emperor's New Clothes, " "The Little Matchgirl, " and "The Ugly Duckling." These stories, and many more, whisk the reader to magical lands, fantastic voyages, romantic encounters, and suspenseful adventures. Beautiful color and black-and-white sketches enhance these fairy tales and bring them to life.

A perfect gift for the very young and the very old (and everyone in between), and the perfect bedside-table companion.

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.
