A wonderful story collection, with the warmth and wit of the 19th-century originals. Emma Chichester-Clark's magical, colourful images, combined with Naomi Lewis's beautiful writing, make this an anthology to treasure.
Naomi Lewis is a leading authority on the writing of Hans Christian Andersen. She herself is a distinguished children's writer, poet, anthologiser and a much-respected reviewer of children's books.
"Emma Chichester Clark's outstanding illustrations capture the spirit of the stories brilliantly and the details really add to the feel of the book. Another anthology which will be treasured and which makes a perfect gift with its high-end production."
