3.0 out of 5 stars Hans Christian Anderson
Reviewed in the United States on October 18, 2021
***Update: I wrote my original review immediately after receiving the book; I was excited to complete my MinaLima HarperCollins Classics Collection... I did not read the book yet; but after finishing the book, I have better insight for a more accurate review.***

For those zealot Harry Potter fans, you should know who/what MinaLima is… if you don’t — they are a design and illustration studio company based in the UK, who are probably most known for doing the designs for the Harry Potter movies.

They’ve partnered with Scholastic to issue their edition of the Harry Potter series, which are illustrated hardcover editions, with interactive designs. They’ve also partnered with HarperCollins to do a classics series of books; currently there are 8 of them, and this is one of them.

All of the MinaLima books are the same. They are hardcover with no dust jacket, and a "leaflet" in the back that looks like it could have been the back of a dust jacket instead. The “interactive designs" are not actually interactive at all; it's not the same as a pull-tab book or something (at least not in this book). The book is printed on quality paper, but the illustrations are very mediocre compared to other editions for similar prices.

This book is the fairy tales of Hans Christian Anderson, and there are 12 of them in the book. The first one is The Little Mermaid — which is different and a lot darker than the Disney version.

I got my 8 HarperCollins classic MinaLima editions while Amazon was doing their buy-2, get-3 deal… which they’ve ended. A lot of book titles were eligible. I placed two separate orders to take advantage of the deal. I got 6 books, but only had to pay for 4. One of them, Peter Pan, wasn’t available directly from Amazon anymore, so I had to get it from a third-party seller (in the UK, no less!)… but I used my award points from my Prime card, so it only cost me like $12. I didn’t get any discount on The Wizard of Oz book, but at $25, it was still less than the retail price.

The 12 fairy tales in this book are:
The Little Mermaid
The Nightingale
The Ugly Duckling
The Swineherd
The Tinder Box
The Princess and the Pea
The Emperor’s New Clothes
The Red Shoes
Thumbelina
The Steadfast Tin Soldier
The Little Match Girl
The Snow Queen

The 8 HarperCollins Classics, MinaLima Edition series are:
The Little Mermaid and Other Fairy Tales
The Wizard of Oz
Beauty and the Beast
Peter Pan
The Secret Garden
Pinocchio
Alice in Wonderland
The Jungle Book
