WHAT THE MOON SAW AND OTHER TALES - 45 stories from the pen of H C Andersen
This volume was intended as a sequel to Andersen’s 1864 Stories and Tales (see end pages of this book) and was aimed at slightly older children. This book of fairy tales and stories deals with more complex moral questions, without sacrificing Andersen’s characteristic imaginative and fantasy elements.
The series of sketches of varying lengths in this book arose from the Andersen’s experiences when as a youth he went to seek his fortune Copenhagen, in the capital of his native land; and the story entitled "Under the Willow Tree" is said likewise to have its foundation in fact.
Containing 45 stories and tales, it is Illustrated with 80 woodcuts done by the brothers Dalziel, from illustrations by Alfred Water Bayes.
Some of the stories in this volume are:
What the Moon Saw
The Story of the Year
The Goblin and the Huckster
In a Thousand Years
The Bond of Friendship
Jack the Dullard
Under the Willow Tree
A Leaf from the Sky
The Dumb Book plus many, many more.
