About the book:

A gawky, dreamy boy, Hans Christian Andersen grew up to become a profoundly imaginative writer and storyteller who revolutionized literature for children. Andersen gave us the now standard versions of some traditional folk tales as well as original stories that have enchanted generations of readers. To commemorate the bicentennial of his birth, Viking will publish a new translation of thirty of his extraordinary tales, illustrated with Andersens own paper cuts. From the exuberant early stories such as "The Tinderbox" and "The Emperors New Clothes" through poignant masterpieces such as "The Little Mermaid" and "The Ugly Duckling," to darker, more subversive later tales written for adults, the stories here are endlessly experimental, humorous and irreverent, sorrowful and strange. Tiina Nunnallys sparkling new translation capturesfor the first time in Englishthe vibrancy of Andersens voice. Compiled by Andersens biographer Jackie Wullschlager, who also contributes notes and a captivating introduction, this volume will be a major literary event that will dazzle readers young and old.
