Meet the Author

Hans Christian Andersen
Hans Christian Andersen (2 April 1805 -- 4 August 1875) was born in the quiet provincial town of Odense in Denmark. As a boy, he was fascinated by stories and would often go to listen to the old women in the workhouse telling the traditional tales that had been handed down over the years by word of mouth.

As he grew, he turned this fascination with the oral tradition into written stories. By the time he had reached his mid-thirties, Andersen's first three novels had become very popular in Germany in Sweden, and when his fairy tales were gathered and published as a book for the first time in 1839, he became famous throughout Europe and the rest of the world.

Today, his stories have left an indelible mark on the genre of fairy tales and folklore, with tales such as Thumbelina, The Emperor's New Clothes and The Ugly Duckling occupying a permanent place in imagination of the modern reader.

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.

    Disappointed!

    There is no table of contents or an option to skip a story. Oh, and there are no illustrations... bummer. The .99 cents nook book I downloaded a sample of has the TOC, so do I feel cheated! Not worth it. Sorry.

    Devon's Harry Styles Imagine Part One ♥ A

    "Wha-ho-whe-what?!" I yell. "Yo. Devs. I have my ways. Or I just won a radio contest." Alicia, who is my best friend EVA, waves the One Direction tickets infront of my face. "And your taking me? Not one of your sisters?" I ask. "Well duh! Lily, Ana, Kayla and Ginger are lame! They don't een like One Direction or thier opening act! By the way, it's still 5 Seconds Of Summer! Maybe Luke will fall in love with me." Alicia sighs. "Did you just suggest..." I trail off. "Yes, Devon. We get to meet 5 Seconds Of Summer and One Direction." Alicia rolls her eyes. "A! This is exciting! When's the concert?" I ask. "Tonight. I already picked out our outfits. I know that you might not like it but whatever." Alicia waves her hand. She hands me ripped skinny jeans, a London, England shirt and high-top blacl Nike's. It's alright. Could be a better outfit but whatever. I get dressed in the bathroom and I come out to see Alicia in black skinny jeans, a Nirvana shirt and black ankle boots. And she looked HOT! "Wow. A! You look amazing. Why don't you have a boyfriend? Or a girlfriend. You are bisexual, right?" I ask. I totally forgot if she is or not. "Yeah, I am. And don't tell Luke. He might not like me if you tell him..." Alicia bites her lip, a habit she has when she's nervous or thinking or lying. But Alicia's not lying. I know when she's lying. "So, when are we going?" I ask. "Uhh... now." Alicia says as she looks at a clock. We rush to Alicia's car and drive. *AFTER THE CONCERT* "Hi, Luke, Calum, Ashton, Michael, Liam, Niall, Harry, Zayn and Louos. Aaah, so many names!" Alicia laughs. She bites her lip. "Hi. You must be Alicia. Who did you bring with you?" Harry says in his ultra-sexy deep and husky voice that makes a girl melt like ice cream on a hot Texas day. Wait, what? "I'm Devon." I whisper. Oh god, I'm so awkward. "Well, Devon, you look nice." Harry smiles and let his dimples show. "And so do you, Alicia." Luke added with a wink. Alicia blushes. She's awkward to. "Thank you, Lu-Luke." Alicia stutters. She must be embarrassed. So I rescue her, like always. "So, we get a little more time then the others, correct?" I ask. You're welcome, Alicia. "That's correct. Alicia, do you want to see the view from here?" Luke blushes a tiny bit. Not to noticable. "Sure." Alicia smiles and takes Luke's out- stretched hand. "Devon, can I have your number?" Harry asks. "Sure." I blush. Yep. Now I know how Alicia feels.********* Hey, Devon. This is your part one. I know it's kind of short but I ran out of idea for the beginning. Sorry. But I hope you like it. &#9829 A
