This enchanting collection, retold by writer and critic Naomi
Lewis, contains twelve of Hans Christian Andersen's magnificent
stories. It includes Thumbelina, a little girl no more than a
thumb-joint high, The Emperor's New Clothes, the tale of a man who
cares only for his appearance and The Little Mermaid, who longs to
one day marry a human prince. It includes a wonderful cover
illustration and new introduction by award-winning picture-book
creator Jan Pienkowski.
