About The Book
‘My fairy tales were as much for older people as for children…humour was the real salt in them.’
Hans Andersen is best remembered for the tales collected in this edition, stories that have become classics and have been translated into over a hundred languages.
This selection contains twenty-eight stories, including ‘The Tinder-Box,’ ‘Thumbelina,’ ‘The Little Mermaid,’ ‘The Ugly Duckling,’ and ‘The Snow Queen,’ as well as others that are less well known. Some of the tales are taken from history or Danish folk tales, but the majority are Andersen’s own invention and often feature the author, his friends and enemies in a variety of guises.
This classic edition is accompanied by the original illustrations by Vilhelm Pedersen and Lorenz Frøhlich.
