Publisher Description

Blending Danish folklore with magical storytelling, Hans Christian Andersen's unique fairy tales describe a world of beautiful princesses and sinister queens, rewarded virtue and unresolved desire. Rich with popular tales such as The Ugly Duckling, The Emperor's New Clothes and the darkly enchanting The Snow Queen, this revelatory new collection also contains many lesser-known but intriguing stories, such as the sinister The Shadow, in which a shadow slyly takes over the life of the man to whom it is bound.
