Long beloved by children all around the world, the stories of Hans Christian Andersen are filled with optimism, wit, and subtle irony. This delightful collection includes "The Beetle," "The Princess and the Pea," and "Thumbellina." The first story tells of an egotistical bug who travels the globe, only to find there's no place like home. In "The Princess and the Pea," the title character proves she is of royal blood when a pea placed under her mattress keeps her awake all night. And in the final tale, Thumbellina - a girl so tiny she fits inside half a walnut shell - overcomes innumerable hardships to live happily ever after with her charming prince. In Spanish.
