This enchanting collection, retold by writer and critic Naomi Lewis, contains eight of Hans Christian Andersen’s magnificent fairy tales.

Hans Christian Andersen was born in Odense, Denmark, in 1805. At the age of 14 he went to Copenhagen to become an actor. He failed and instead went back to school, where he was very unhappy. He published his first book, an account of a walking trip, in 1829. From then on he wrote many books, finding his true voice in his original fairy stories, which often had their basis in his life. He died in 1875.

    "Older Gradeschoolers Please"
    What did you like best about Hans Andersen's Fairy Tales? What did you like least?

    The narrator was far and away the best thing about this book. The grimm nature of some of the stories would be best suited for a mature 3rd grader to possibly 6th grade student.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Clearness, perfect diction, and well reined accent made it easy for children to understand.

    "Buy the CD Instead"

    Nothing wrong with the stories but the book is downloaded as a singe 3-hour track. Even when burned to CD the tracks don't correspond with the stories so you cant't jump to the story you want. A waste of time.

    "Does not contain the 12 stories"

    This only contains 7 of the stories not the 12 as described. Disappointing as I wanted the 12 stories.
