Description

"It doesn't matter if you're born in a duck yard, so long as you are hatched from a swan's egg!"--Hans Christian Andersen, "The Ugly Duckling." Fairy tales are timeless treasures passed from generation to generation, and few are as beloved as those of Danish author, Hans Christian Andersen. From the princess so sensitive she is discomforted by a single pea beneath a tower of mattresses to the unfortunate-looking duckling who matures into a stunning swan, these are the stories that stay with us long after we leave childhood behind. First published in 1835, Andersen's tales continue to delight the modern audience. Now part of the Word Cloud Classics series, Hans Christian Andersen Tales is a chic and affordable collection of these wonderful stories, complete with classics like "Thumbelina" and "The Little Mermaid," plus some wonderful lesser-known gems to discover anew.
