All the illustrated stories of the immortal Hans Christian Andersen are included in this handsome volume, a facsimile reproduction of a collection which first appeared in 1889. More than a century after they were written, Andersen's stories retain their freshness, magic and power to amuse; told and retold over the years to generations of delighted listeners, they have become part of our heritage. Thumbelina, the wicked Snow Queen, the Emperor with his new clothes, the Ugly Duckling - these characters are our familiar friends.

All the classic fairy tales appear in this book, as well as over 100 other stories, accounts of Andersen's travels, and his short autobiography 'The Story of My Life' - 137 stories in total. More than 290 original engravings capture the special enchantment of the tales.

Every age group - whether children hearing Andersen's tales for the first time, or parents and grandparents rediscovering them as they read aloud - will find this book a pleasure to own.
