Hans Christian Anderson was perhaps the greatest author of the literary fairy-tale. This wonderful treasury of stories contains more than 25 of his best-known tales, including 'The Snow Queen’, 'The Emperor’s New Suit’ and 'The Red Shoes’. These utterly original stories avoid the moral didacticism and Disney-esque saccharine that fairy tales are often associated with – instead their beauty, tragedy and strangeness have captivated the imagination of readers, both young and old.
