From School Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 4-- Lewis' translation of Andersen's familiar story is well written and easily understood, and the delicate, jeweled-toned watercolors are among the best available to invoke the mood of the story. This book joins nine other picture-book editions of the story currently in print, but is a worthy purchase because of the quality of the illustrations. Also, Lewis has elected a simple version which, while maintaining the flavor of the original, presents the story in a style easily understood by children of today. To do this, she has eliminated some delightful passages that might be appreciated by older children. Thus, while this version is a delight for younger audiences, a second one with a more complete translation should also be available. --Constance A.

Great reads start with the classics!
My wife and I often buy children's books for our grandchildren (of course) but also for our own enjoyment because the illustrations are so well done.
This book is just gorgeous.
I was a little surprised at the size (quite small), but I must admit I didn't read anything about size in the description.
The book was a gift for elementary school friends. They were very happy with it.
