Every family should own this exquisite collection of stories by Hans Christian Anderson whose 200th birthday we celebrate this year. Stories such as The Princess and the Pea, The Nightingale, The Little Match Girl, The Emperor's New Clothes, should be familiar to your child as well as some new ones.
This elegant large book is illustrated by one of the world's most celebrated artists who received the prestigious Hans Christian medal for her lifetime contribution to children's literature. (I actually was there at an IBBY conference in Berlin when she received it.)
