The Lovereading4Kids comment
The best-loved tales by master storyteller Hans Christian Andersen are elegantly retold in this beautifully illustrated edition. Hans Christian Andersen’s stories encompass a wide range of emotions from the pathos of stories such as The Ugly Duckling and The Little Match Girl to the sheer entertainment of The Princess and the Pea or The Emperor’s New Clothes. Joel Stewart’s illustrations capture both the humour and the dark elements of the stories.
This title is part of the Walker Illustrated Classics, a new series which brings together some of the best-loved stories ever told, illustrated by some of today's finest artists. These exquisitely designed books, with their magnificent words and glorious pictures, are a pleasure to read - and re-read. The classics have never looked so good.
