Description
 
Hans Christian Andersen gave us the now standard versions of some traditional folk tales, but many of his most famous tales sprang directly from his imagination. The stories here are endlessly experimental, humorous & irreverent, sorrowful & strange. They range from exuberant early works, such as “The Tinderbox” & “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” through poignant masterpieces, such as “The Little Mermaid” & “The Ugly Duckling,” to powerful & more subversive later tales written for adults, such as “The Ice Maiden” & “The Wood Nymph.” This new translation of 30 of his tales captures the vibrancy of Andersen’s voice. Illustrated with Andersen’s own paper cuts, this volume will dazzle readers young & old.
