Fairy Tales: (Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition)



A Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition of Hans Christian Andersen’s famous tales, from award-winning translator Tiina Nunnally

Hans Christian Andersen was the profoundly imaginative writer and storyteller who revolutionized literature for children. He gave us the now standard versions of some traditional fairy tales–with an anarchic twist–but many of his most famous tales sprang directly from his imagination. The thirty stories here range from exuberant early works such as The Tinderbox and The Emperor’s New Clothes through poignant masterpieces such as The Little Mermaid and The Ugly Duckling to more subversive later tales such as The Ice Maiden and The Wood Nymph.
