Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
"The Little Mermaid," "The Red Shoes," "The Ugly Duckling," "The Princes and the Pea," "The Emperor's New Clothes," and "The Little Match Girl" are but a few of the wonderful classic stories included in this collection of short stories by the master, Hans Christian Andersen. It is refreshing to have such a comprehensive text of traditional classic stories to provide to today's youth, since so many classical works are simply related today via cartoon and big screen. Text features include a table of contents; several clarifying footnotes are included where further background information would be helpful. Part of the series "Charming Classics," this book fills a gap in the availability of classic literature. Andersen fans will be fully absorbed by this title. The book would be a great addition to a classroom English unit on classic literature. 2005 (orig. 1835), HarperFestival/HarperCollins Publishers, Ages 8 to 12.
