Biography

Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875) was born in Odense, Denmark, to a poor family. He left home as a 14-year-old to seek his fortune at the theatre in Copenhagen. Andersen began writing plays and poetry before he left for Copenhagen, but it was not until 1835 that he published the first of the fairytales that would bring him international renown. Since then, his over 200 fairytales have enjoyed undiminished popularity, providing the basis for favorite American interpretations such as Disney's The Little Mermaid.

    This complete collection is beautifully bound. The book is illustrated, just not on every single page. They are scattered every few pages. If you love classic fairy tales this is definitely worth having.

    Only warning like Brother Grimm's some stories might be TOO much

    Only warning like Brother Grimm's some stories might be TOO much for little kids, The Storks is a GOOD one to avoid until the a bit older for GOOD reason. Look up the store and you under stand why. Again, like Grimm's book may it be PC due to it time he live end. However still great book and parent should add to collections
