Some brief overview of this book

The fairy tales of Hans Christian Andersen have enchanted children and adults alike for over a hundred and fifty years. The twelve stories in this new collection include old favorites such as The Nightengale, The Ugly Duckling, and The Princess and the Pea, as well s some less-known tales such as The Snowman and The Shepherdess and the Chimney Sweep.

These tales show the many facets of Andersens unique genius. By turns romantic and practical, sentimental and comic, straightforward and ironic, they can provide both an evenings entertainment and continued food for thought.

Neil Philips sparkling new translation aims to capture Andersens relaxed, conversational style, often lost in older literary versions. In his introduction, Philip considers Andersens life and achievements and hails him as one of the greatest artists ever to write for children.

The stories are illustrated by Isabelle Brent with glowing pictures full of rich decorative detail reminscent of Gustav Klimt. Her use of gold leaf brings a sense of glittering wonder to every page - a sense of wonder just right for contemplating Andersens masterful stories.

A few words about book's author

Biography

Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875) was born in Odense, Denmark, to a poor family. He left home as a 14-year-old to seek his fortune at the theatre in Copenhagen. Andersen began writing plays and poetry before he left for Copenhagen, but it was not until 1835 that he published the first of the fairytales that would bring him international renown. Since then, his over 200 fairytales have enjoyed undiminished popularity, providing the basis for favorite American interpretations such as Disneys The Little Mermaid.
