Along with the fables of Aesop and the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen's classic tales probably rank as rites of passage for practically all true bibliophiles.
This collection of fourteen tales by Andersen, selected and beautifully illustrated in colour by Edward Ardizzone, hence the title, should appeal to all lovers of fairy tales, young or not so young, who are enchanted by such fables, and to others who have yet to discover how enchanting they are, which is why they have all stood the test of time. They include the perennial favourites 'The Emperor's New Clothes', 'The Wild Swans' and 'The Ugly Duckling'. A good translation often makes all the difference and Stephen Corrin has done a wonderful job.
Not to have discovered the tales of these masters means having missed out on enchanting enchantment. It is never too late to catch up.
