Fairy tales – Hans Christian Andersen

Elves, goblins, mermaids, princesses make up only a few of the characters in these much loved stories: ‘The emperor’s New Clothes’, ‘The Little Match Girl’, and ‘The Ugly Duckling’ are just some of the popoular stories in this anthology. Sometimes funny, but often more tragic and gruesome than you might have realised if you have only seen the Disney versions, these fables involve important life and moral lessons. Sometimes we don’t get what we want, we get what we need. Beautifully vivid and thought-provoking, these stories should be read by adults and children alike.
