The Lovereading4Kids comment

The Princess and the Pea and The Little Match Girl, two of Hans Christian Andersen’s best-loved tales, are included in this beautifully illustrated edition of his stories. Naomi Lewis’s prose sparkles in the lively retellings which contain all the traditional elements of the stories while also making them totally relevant to today. Emma Chichester Clark’s illustrations similarly capture the old and the new as she brings the stories to life in her stylish, jewel-bright illustrations.
