"The Princess and the Pea, " "The Little Mermaid, " and other great Andersen fairy tales have enchanted children since the first ones appeared in Danish in the 1830s and '40s. Spink's translation into English is widely recognized as the finest, and the new Everyman's Library edition is further graced by the magical pictures made in 1899 by three of Britain's most celebrated illustrators.

About the Author

Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875) was a Danish writer who gained fame with his fairy tales, such as "The Ugly Duckling" and "The Little Mermaid," which were cleverly written to disguise the tales' sophisticated moral teachings.
