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.
Emma Chichester-Clark’s combination of magical images combine with Naomi Lewis’s beautiful writing to make this an anthology which will be sought after, much-read and greatly treasured.
"A must for any fan of fairy tales, told with rare and often heart-stopping elegance, and luminously illustrated." The Sunday Times
