The stories featured in this beautifully illustrated version include old favourites such as Thumbelina and The Snow Queen as well as some less-known tales such as The Goblin at the Grocerss and The Snowman.These tales show the many facets of Andersens unique genius. By turns romantic and practical, sentimental and comic, straightforward and ironic, they can provide both an evenings entertainment and continued food for thought.Neil Philips sparkling translation of these much loved tales aims to capture Andersens relaxed, conversational style, often lost in older literary versions. In this introduction, Philip considers Andersens life and achievements and hails him as one of the greatest artists ever to write for children.The eye-capturing illustrations by Isabelle Brent are embellished with gold, which brings a sense of glittering wonder to every page - a sense of wonder just right for contemplating Andersens masterful stories.
