Fifteen of Hans Christian Andersen's beloved fairy tales, narrated by a full cast.

aaaaaUnlike the Brothers Grimm, who collected and retold folklore and fairy tales, Hans Christian Andersen adopted the most ancient literary forms and distilled them into a genre that was uniquely his own. Andersen's fairy tales, such as "The Snow Queen," "The Ugly Duckling," "The Little Mermaid" and "The Nightingale," are remarkable for their sense of fantasy and magic, power of description, nuanced morals, and vivid imagination. They are like no others written before or since.a
aaaa Recognizing the literary merit of Andersen's own simple colloquial language, which Victorian translators and their imitators very often altered to sentimentalize or vulgarize, translator Erik Haugaard has remained faithful to the original text. Listeners will rediscover Hans Christian Andersen's best-known fairy tales, and find new favorites, all brought to life by a full cast.

aaaaaStories include-aThe Princess and the Pea; Thumbelina; The Little Mermaid; The Emperor's New Clothes; The Steadfast Tin Soldier; The Wild Swans; The Nightingale; The Ugly Duckling; The Snow Queen; The Little Match Girl; "The Will-o'-the-Wisps are in Town," said the Bog Witch; The Rags; The Adventures of a Thistle; Luck Can Be Found in a Stick; The Days of the Week
