Naomi Lewis, who sadly died in 2009, was a leading authority on the writing of Hans Christian Andersen. She was also a distinguished children's writer, poet and much-respected reviewer of children's books.
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.
This traditional Norwegian fairy tale is an epic story of a bewitched prince and the determined lassie who loves him, rags and riches, hags and heroism, magic and mystery, a curse and a quest, and wicked trolls with some of the longest noses ever seen!
This collection of classic stories celebrates the relationship between child and treasured toy. This anthology introduces tales of Rag Bag; the doll which saved Vasilissa from the fearsome witch Baba Yaga; the adventures of Hans Anderson's tin soldier; and the enchanted rocking horse Rollande.
