n this volume you will find 20 illustrated children’s stories by the master story-teller Hans Christian Andresen. The Hans Andersen Fairy Tales will be read in schools and homes as long as there are children who love to read. As a story-teller for children the Hans Andersen has no rival in the power to enlist the imagination of children and carry it along natural, healthful lines. The 21 full page illustrations and 20 illustrated story heads by Edna F. Hart give added depth and meaning to the stories.

In this volume you will find familiar Andersen stories like:
  • The Ugly Duckling
  • The Steadfast Tin Soldier
  • Little Thumbelina
  • The Little Match Girl
  • The Snow Queen

You will also find another 15 less familiar but enchanting stories like:

  • The Roses And The Sparrows
  • The Old House

The power of his tales to charm and elevate runs like a living thread through whatever he writes. In the two books, the first of which is presented here, they have met the tests and held an undiminishing popularity among the best children's books. They have set the standard, and their place in permanent literature will grow wider and more secure as time passes. Only a few children's authors will be ranked among the Immortals, and Hans Andersen is without a doubt one of them.
