Fairy tale classics from Hans Christian Andersen and illustrations by internationally acclaimed artist Lisbeth Zwerger -- it doesn't get better than this! Originally published in 1991, this stunning collection has been redesigned and expanded with three stories. From familiar tales, such as "The Emperor's New Clothes" and "The Princess and the Pea" to lesser-known stories, such as "The Sandman" and "The Jumpers," the collection is fully illustrated in Zwerger's elegant and eye-catching signature style.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tales, edited and illus. by Lisbeth Zwerger, trans. by Anthea Bell, originally published in 1991, includes three additional stories, and its new design matches Zwerger's Alice in Wonderland and The Wizard of Oz. The 11 tales include the familiar ("The Little Match Girl") and the lesser-known ("The Sandman"). Zwerger's signature watercolors come alive in full-page illustrations elegantly and simply framed in a band of white. From grief-stricken Thumbeline leaning over the dead swallow to the self-deluded, nearly naked emperor admiring himself vainly in the mirror, the artwork conveys a range of emotions.
