This handsome and easy-to-read mini edition features eight tales from beloved storyteller Hans Christian Andersen and pairs old favorites, including "Thumbelina" and "The Emperor's New Clothes," with lesser-known tales, such as "The Sandman" and "The Jumper."

Lisbeth Zwerger is one of the world’s preeminent children’s book artists, and one of the most original interpreters of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fairytales. This handsome collection, abridged from her well-regarded 1991 treasury, includes ten favorite stories, such as “The Princess and the Pea” and “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” as well as lesser-known but equally wonderful stories, all featuring Ms. Zwerger’s distinctively elegant, witty illustrations. This superb anthology is the perfect introduction to both the work of Ms. Zwerger and Hans Christian Andersen.
