The Disabled Veteran 26 décembre 2011

I never heard of this Hans Christian Anderson's Fairy Tale until my daughter viewed Fantasia 2000. However the story is much different than what is depicted on film. I bought the paperback edition yet I would prefer a hardcover to pass down to my child. The story is very tragic for the soldier and his love when both are put to the test. Many scenes appear by chance and left for the reader to fill in the blanks yet I believe this was deliberately hidden and turned into metaphor in a time when the people were censored in Europe.

My Tin Soldier 26 mars 2013
Par NYC Gal - Publié sur Amazon.com

I didn't really like the layout of this edition. I didn't like it because certain pages had a very long narrative, my daughter doesn't really care for this book at all because of that - like, there will be just one page with nothing but text, so it's not ideal for a very young child. I also didn't like the layout because some of the pages had a text box for the narrative - if you're wondering what I'm talking about, the text box is that box on the cover with all the words on it.

The illustrations though are very beautiful - especially the page with the fish, the fish seem very detailed. The illustrations look like they might have been originally oil painted. I chose this edition because unbelievably there wasn't a lot to choose from on Amazon, surprisingly editions of The Steadfast Tin Soldier has been sold out by many other publications. I also chose this one because the soldiers' uniform look like a red version of the USMC's dress blue uniform (Marine wife!), and because he's shouldering a bayonet (just like the Marines).

Anyway, the story itself is true to the Andersen, so this is not a re-telling, but a translation instead. However, it seems to be translated into British English and not American English. This doesn't bother me too much as mostly the words are the same with different spelling - like colour instead of color.

I completely forgot all about this story until I happened upon it in 2011. I felt like this story touch me personally and I love it very much. My husband lost his right leg in Afghanistan in October 2010 by stepping on an IED. This story is about a tin soldier with only one leg - and in the drawing, where his other leg would have been is a stump, which makes me think of all those veterans out there that this tin soldier represents in reality. Anyway, he is so brave, and it's a sad love story with a tragic ending, and it made me cry.

I only gave it four stars instead of five because I didn't really like the layout too much as I already mentioned, but the story itself is very touching and beautiful and deserves five stars; but I wish I could find another edition with a different layout though. Anyway, it arrived within a week with Free Super Saving Shipping.

This is a classic Christmas story with excellent illustrations. I bought a used copy and the seller did an excellent job to make sure I was satisfied when I mentioned that it had a little more wear and tear than I expected.
