Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tales
This wonderful treasury of stories contains more than 25 of his best-known tales, including 'The Snow Queen', 'The Emperor's New Suit' and 'The Red Shoes'. These utterly original stories avoid the moral didacticism and Disney-esque saccharine that fairy tales are often associated with - instead their beauty, tragedy and strangeness have captivated the imagination of readers, both young and old.
Hans Christian Andersen, in Denmark usually called H.C. Andersen, was a Danish author. Although a prolific writer of plays, travelogues, novels, and poems, he is best remembered for his fairy tales.
