Format: Hardcover
my daughter is almost six and i opened the pages for our bedtime read with the expectation of quick rejection. the illustrations are truly remarkable and can delight young and old; the prose itself comes across as faithful to the original, yet far too elegant and sophisticated for a young child - or so I thought. to my surprise, she was mesmerized (which thankfully didn't stop her nodding off after a few pages each night.) we read it from start to finish within two weeks. it helped perhaps that she'd previewed several of the tales in her school. yes, there is a dark element, the figure of death is no stranger to these pages. yet my daughter seemed to stretch herself and her imagination, a quick and gratifying leap from the, to my mind, somewhat limited scope, for all their charms, of Dr. Seuss books. She proved ready to put "childish things" behind her -- so long as there was a beautiful picture every 2-3 pages, which this edition with lisbeth zwerger illustrations certainly has. a wonderful, remarkable read, despite the prose and subject matter being a bit hard for her age. and all the more stunning as she's a bilingual child, with English not really her strongest suit (though developing rapidly, thanks in part to this book.)

Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tales are classics that I grew up with...an especially important component in elementary literacy. This version in particular, is a most wonderful tribute to a master and some mastery at work. I highly recommend it! The vendor was great! Product arrived as described and in condition as described.

Format: Hardcover
Most of Andersen's Tales are dark, even a bit scary and many are truly heart breaking. Even though they are described as fairy tales, they can be enjoyed far more by adults. Children may enjoy the well known tales which are actually the simplest, but most can be enjoyed only by grown ups.

Ironically, the first time I saw this book it was in a coffeehouse in Japan! I looked for it in English on Amazon and am delighted with the artistry of the illustrations. I collect children's books for their illustrations.

It was a gift. The reviewer is too young to comment at this time. Wait a few years.
