Rediscovering Hans Christian Andersen 9 novembre 2007
Par ThirdShift - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I am way above the recommended age for this book, I picked this up on a whim. My childhood's first memories is reading Andersen fairy tales. They were always the oddball stories that didn't conform to any typical mode: most of them included death (Matchgirl, Little Mermaid), had unconventional heroes (Tin Soldier - what kind of hero has one leg?) weren't all sugar-spice-n-everything-nice, and whimsical in the right place. They were inscrutable and strange to a child, but because of or in spite of that, they stuck with you.

I'm moved to write a review for this children's book for one reason only: the annotation is superb! I never knew that Andersen worked with toy theatre, or there were parallels in his life and The Ugly Duckling, that he came from poverty and never completely overcame the inferiority complex from his low birth. He was the first to adopt a conversational voice in his story-telling, also the first to give human characteristics and voice to inanimate objects. The details with which he embelished his stories is genius and brilliant; re-reading the description of the Little Mermaid's undersea world confirms that. His fairy tales have a literary element: the details, the drama, the dissonance, the untidiness of real life. I don't think I understood all that when I was 8 or 9, but I wish someone had read this book with me when I was 8 or 9, and explained to me the vanguard genius of Andersen.

The stories are beautifully translated, the illustration is fetching, although I don't get the drama-set vibes. There is annotation preceding every tale, and it takes an adult to read and explain this to a young reader. For example, preceding The Little Mermaid, there is a small paragraph dealing with the soul. Young readers will need help with the concept and vocab. I'm happy to have re-discovered Andersen fairy tales through this book, and I heartily recommend it to anyone who grew up with the inscrutable Andersen, adult or child. A great book for the future lit studies post-doc, and his/her lit studies post-doc parents.

A FAVORITE EDITION OF ANDERSEN'S TALES 12 octobre 2010
Par Gail Cooke - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The Tales of Hans Christian Andersen is one book no children's library should be without - especially this edition. London artist Joel Stewart brings new excitement to well loved stories with wonderfully imaginative illustrations. The Ugly Duckling was never more triumphant; The Little Mermaid more endearing.

I think the publishers have done children and their parents a real service in offering beautifully illustrated classics in sturdy softcover at very reasonable prices.

Excellent Compilation 11 juin 2010
Par N. Watson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Though the illustrations are scarce, the pieces are artistic and interesting. It would be hard to keep the attention of a very young child because it is so text heavy. Often the translation is a little clumsey and doesn't roll off the tounge well...just one more reason to read aloud slowly so that children can understand and comprehend the content.
