Présentation de l'éditeur

For more than 150 years, Hans Christian Andersen’s beloved fairy tales have charmed and entertained audiences around the world. Blending old folk tales with fantasy, the Danish bard’s stories are rich in humor and sharp with irony. The forty-seven fables in this beautifully translated collection tell of kings and princesses, of farm boys and mermaids, of witches and ogres. Some of the tales—like The Little Match Girl and The Emperor’s New Clothes—we know by heart. Others—like The Jumpers and The Flying Trunk—are sure to become instant favorites. Packed with memorable characters (who could forget the Ugly Duckling or the Little Mermaid?), Andersen’s fairy tales have withstood the test of time, delighting generation after generation of children and adults—and they promise to remain bedtime favorites for centuries to come…

Translated by Pat Shaw Iversen

With a New Introduction

And an Afterword by Joanne Greenberg

Illustrated with line drawings

Biographie de l'auteur

Hans Christian Andersen was born in 1805 in Odense, Denmark. His father was a poor cobbler,  his mother nearly illiterate. At fourteen, armed with little more than sheer determination, Andersen went to Copenhagen, where he succeeded in winning the patronage of several prominent citizens, and acquired some formal schooling. In 1829, his poems, plays, and travel sketches began to appear. In 1835, his first novel, The Improvisatore, met with considerable success. That same year, he published his first collection of tales, to be followed over the years by further creations in a genre he made singularly his own.  His life was marked by extensive travels, enormous popularity, the friendship of many leading personalities of the era, and the highest honors of his native land. By the time of his death in 1875, this gauche, awkward figure, born in the humblest of circumstances, had enjoyed a career that might well have come out of one of his most imaginative tales.

Joanne Greenberg was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1932. She graduated from American University and presently teaches at the Colorado School of Mines. The author of many award-winning novels, including I Never Promised You a Rose Garden and In This Sign, she lives in Denver, Colorado.

A revisitation of a childhood love of mine 21 décembre 2008
Par Charles Ashbacher - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I was very fortunate in my youth to be exposed to most of the fairy tales of Hans Christian Andersen. When I was in elementary school, I expressed a love for fairy tales so my teacher handed me this book of Andersen's tales. I loved the book so much that when I encountered it again so many years later, I had to re-read it.
The stories in this collection are:

*) The Snow Queen
*) The Steadfast Tin Soldier
*) The Wild Swans
*) The Swineherd
*) The Little Mermaid
*) The Candles
*) The Flying Trunk
*) The Ugly Duckling
*) The Emperor's New Clothes
*) Great Claus and Little Claus
*) The Nightingale
*) The Traveling Companion
*) The Real Princess
*) The Darning-Needle
*) Five Out of One Pod
*) The Bell
*) The Storks
*) The Bottle Neck
*) Thumbelisa
*) Old Shut-Eye
*) The Marsh King's Daughter
*) Hans Clodhopper
*) The Garden of Paradise
*) The Tinder Box
*) The Flax
*) The Last Dream of the Old Oak
*) The Blue Mountains

My favorite fairy tale of Andersen's is also my overall favorite, "The Emperor's New Clothes." In a few short pages, Andersen manages to satirize political pomposity, the con-artists, people who go along to get along and the one honest person that speaks the truth and exposes it all for the sham that it is. Wisdom comes in many forms, one of the most profound is a simple story that delights children and exposes the rest of us.

Hans Christian Anderson is timeless and your children should know his tales directly and not through some modern convoluted Disney interpretation. Buy this book for them and enjoy it yourself!
