The Lovereading4Kids comment
Thumbelina, The Nightingale, The Ugly Duckling and The Princess and the Pea, are all here in a wonderful collection of stories written by Hans Christian Anderson. Some of the stories are very moralistic, yet retain a mischievous sense of humour. Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tales are incomparable. They have a level of depth absent in any other collection of fairy tales.
Why Sally Grindley, December 2010 Guest Editor, has chosen this book:
"I remember wanting to read these over and over again – still do, now that I’ve delved into them in order to write this piece. Hans Andersen was the master of the fairy tale form, and the range of his work is staggering. The tales abound with universal themes and deep intuitions. Many find their way into the hands of very young children as picture books, such as The Ugly Duckling and The Princess and the Pea, others are very much part of collections that are read and loved by older children. My personal favourite is The Little Match Girl, where horror and beauty are so stunningly juxtaposed."

Fairy Tales Of Hans Christian Andersen by Hans Christian Andersen, Naomi Lewis
Hans Christian Andersen called his life a fairy tale - rising from the obscurity of the slums to become one of the most famous men in the world. But, as Naomi Lewis points out in her introduction, "fairy tales also have their darker side". In life, Andersen was plagued by self-doubt, financial insecurity and toothache, just as the protagonists of his stories had to face terrible trials, forests of thorns and unscalable glass mountains. But it is these dark moments that are among the most memorable aspects of Andersen's tales. Here are thirteen of his very best stories, including "The Princess and the Pea"; "Thumbelina"; "The Emperor's New Clothes"; "The Little Mermaid"; "The Ugly Duckling" and "The Snow Queen".
