Editorial Reviews

Wizards hidden in sacks, murdered grandmothers, and rivers filled with cows all play roles in Hans Christian Andersen’s eccentric and strikingly imaginative fairy tale that chronicles the exploits of the scheming and ever-opportunistic Little Claus and the tenuous relationship he maintains with his employer, the volatile and megalomaniacal Big Claus in this audiobook adeptly performed by the talented Erica Johns, whose rousing, ebullient performance captures the vivid imagery and idiosyncrasies of the kaleidoscopic universe conjured up by the Danish master.

Publisher's Summary

This is a story from the Andersen's Fairy Tales collection.

The world of Hans Christian Andersen is seen through the eyes of children. There is the everyday wonder of an ugly duckling being transformed into a swan; the puffed-up Emperor being fooled by his own importance; the tender tragedy of a little match girl; the upright honesty of John rewarded by his traveling companion. By bringing true feelings to these stories, Andersen's tales have become part of universal folklore.
