Although a prolific writer of plays, travelogues, novels, and poems, Andersen is best remembered for his fairy tales. Andersen's popularity is not limited to children; his stories, called "fairy-tales" in English, express themes that transcend age and nationality. Andersen's fairy tales, which have been translated into more than 125 languages, have become culturally embedded in the West's collective consciousness, readily accessible to children, but presenting lessons of virtue and resilience in the face of adversity for mature readers as well. Some of his most famous fairy tales include "The Little Mermaid", "The Ugly Duckling", "The Nightingale", "The Emperor's New Clothes" and many more.
This definitive collection of work from Hans Christian Andersen—one of the immortals of world literature—not only includes his own notes to his stories but is the only version available in trade paperback that presents Andersen's fairy tales exactly as he collected them in the original Danish edition of 1874. Recognizing the literary merit of Andersen's own simple colloquial language, which Victorian translators and their imitators very often altered to sentimentalize or vulgarize, translator Erik Haugaard has remained faithful to the original text. The fairy tales Hans Christian Andersen wrote, such as "The Snow Queen," "The Ugly Duckling," "The Red Shoes," and "The Nightingale," are remarkable for their sense of fantasy, power of description, and acute sensitivity, and they are like no others written before or since. Unlike the Brothers Grimm, who collected and retold folklore, Andersen adopted the most ancient literary forms of the fairy tale and the folktale and distilled them into a genre that was uniquely his own.
This collection of best-loved stories includes 'The Little Mermaid', 'The Ugly Duckling', and 'The Steadfast Tin Soldier'. Michael Foreman's haunting illustrations are charged with Andersen's essential magic.

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’, ‘The Little Match Girl’ and ‘The Ugly Duckling’, to more subversive later tales such as ‘The Ice Maiden’ and ‘The Dryad’. Uniquely inventive and vivacious in style and with deep insight into the child’s point of view, Andersen had established a new genre in literature. This is the classic translation by Jean Hersholt.
