About the Author

SANNA ANNUKKA is a half Finnish, half English illustrator and print maker. She spent many childhood summers in Finland, and the forests, lakes and wildlife of the region remain a constant source of inspiration. Her work combines nature, childhood memories and her love of storytelling and folklore. In 2006, Sanna's work was spotted by British band Keane which led to a collaboration on their second million selling album Under the Iron Sea. Her client list includes Universal Island Records, British Vogue, Apple/iTunes and Marimekko. Alongside commissioned work Sanna has her own company, developing her own brand of self-styled products. She is currently expanding her product range from limited edition prints on paper to printed textiles, wooden products and jewellery. The Fir Tree is her first book.

HANS CHRISTIAN ANDERSEN was born in Odense, in 1805. The son of a cobbler and a washerwoman, he didn't start school until he was seventeen. He became famous for his fairy tales, including classics such as The Ugly Duckling and The Snow Queen. The Fir Tree was published in 1845. When he died aged 70, the king and crown Prince of Denmark attended his funeral. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I'm a big fan of Sanna Annukka's so I adore the illustrations and think this is a beautiful book to pull out at Christmas. I would say though, if you're unfamiliar with the tale, it's not exactly the feel-good, toasty-warm Christmas experience you're probably hoping for. Definitely not something most people would read to children either.

Beautifully illustrated book. The pictures are lovely on their own but the traditional story by Hans Christian Anderson just add to its depth. Loved by adults and children

Both the story and the illustrations in this book are incredible. This classic Danish story mixed with the beautiful Finnish illustrations make for one unforgettable read.

Very reasonably priced for an art/story book from the U.K. and no delay in shipping. A great Christmas gift for adults and older children.
