Synopsis

The Stories of Hans Christian Andersen by Jeffrey Frank

Hans Christian Andersen's tales have always seized the imagination with their blend of simplicity, eccentricity, and charm, but until now readers have had to content themselves with inaccurate retellings and inadequate translations. Now Diana Crone Frank and Jeffrey Frank offer a much-needed modern translation which returns faithfully to the original Danish. In this collection are twenty-two tales that best represent Andersen's literary legacy: 'The Little Mermaid', 'The Ugly Duckling', 'Thumbelisa', and 'The Princess and the Pea', as well as largely unfamiliar stories like 'By the Outermost Sea'. Illustrated with the delicate and beautiful drawings that accompanied the Danish publication, The Stories of Hans Christian Andersen is sure to delight readers of all ages.

Reviews

A superb book of Andersen's tales . . . it will be difficult for other commemorative editions to match this publication. --Jack Zipes
