About the Author

One of the most prolific and beloved writers of all time, Danish poet and author Hans Christian Andersen is best known for his fairy tales. Born in Odense, Denmark, in 1805, Andersen published his first story at 17. In all, he wrote more than 150 stories before his death in 1875.

Ken Mondschein is a college professor, scholar, fencing master, jouster, and author with expertise in subjects ranging from medieval history to contemporary politics. He was a Fulbright scholar to France, received his PhD in history from Fordham University and is certified as a master of historical fencing by the US Fencing Coaches' Association. His work includes history, fencing, introductions to works of classic literature, and other projects.

Born in Denmark in 1886, Jean P. Hersholt became a film and radio star in the United States. He also translated more than 160 Hans Christian Andersen fairy tales into English.

Hans Christian Andersen (/ˈhɑːnz ˈkrɪstʃən ˈændərsən/; Danish: [hanˀs kʰʁæsd̥jan ˈɑnɐsn̩] ( listen); often referred to in Scandinavia as H. C. Andersen; 2 April 1805 – 4 August 1875) was a Danish author. Although a prolific writer of plays, travelogues, novels, and poems, Andersen is best remembered for his fairy tales. Andersen's popularity is not limited to children; his stories, called eventyr in Danish or "fairy-tales" in English, express themes that transcend age and nationality.

Andersen's fairy tales, which have been translated into more than 125 languages, have become culturally embedded in the West's collective consciousness, readily accessible to children, but presenting lessons of virtue and resilience in the face of adversity for mature readers as well. Some of his most famous fairy tales include "The Emperor's New Clothes", "The Little Mermaid", "The Nightingale", "The Snow Queen", "The Ugly Duckling", and many more.

His stories have inspired ballets, both animated and live-action films, and plays.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very tiny font, no index, few illustrations
By Amazon Customer on January 16, 2020
1. Very few illustrations, like one small illustration every 200 pages.
2. Very tiny print, 6-8 point font.
3. Incomplete. It was missing about 6 tales.
4. The table of contents is NOT alphabetical so it takes forever to find the tale you're looking for.
5. NO index at all.

I was so disappointed in this. It's not complete and it's not really illustrated. Combine that with the teeny tiny font and thin paper and this book is not worth your money.

1.0 out of 5 stars Thin pages, and not cut properly
By Goose on January 18, 2019
From the outside, this looks like a beautiful book. However, I was disappointed to find out that the one page (so far only found one) wasn't even cut properly... as seen in the pictures. The paper is also incredibly thin. Total letdown.
