The fairy tales of Hans Christian Andersen are renowned the world over, having inspired generations of children’s writers ever since their first translation into English. This classic collection includes some of his most famous stories, such as ‘The Ugly Duckling’, ‘The Little Mermaid’, ‘The Emperor’s New Suit’, and ‘The Red Shoes’. Characteristic and captivating, Andersen’s tales offer up a world of enchantment, ingenuity and complex morality, and are a real treat for children and adults alike.
Hans Christian Andersen was born in Denmark in 1805. Although he published poetry, plays and travel sketches based on his travels, he is now most remembered for his fairy tales, which have influenced generations of children’s authors. The first two volumes of Fairy Tales Told for Children were published in 1835, and when his fairy tales were translated a decade later he received long-lasting recognition in the field.
