Monday Madness: Hans Christian Andersen Classic Fairy Tales


 Monday Madness is a new bookish meme hosted by Booklover's Teaparty and Bookfever.

You know that feeling when you feel like you are gonna go mad if you do not get a certain book right away, when you are obsessed and all you want is that one book and you will be happy? That is what Monday Madness is about. All those books you that drive you mad. 

Pick a book. Talk about it- why do you want it? What has drawn you to it? Why is it making you mad with want for it? 





      
Hans Christian Andersen classic fairy tales 

        

Hans Christian Andersen is one of the world's most popular storytellers, and his fairy tales are among the best-loved works of literature. Readers the world over know his poignant tale of "The Little Mermaid," who sacrifices everything for love, and "The Steadfast Tin Soldier," whose affection for a paper ballerina is symbolized by his transformation into a small tin heart. Several of Andersen's stories are so well known—among them "The Emperor's New Clothes" and "The Ugly Duckling"—that their titles alone have become meaningful figures of speech.

Hans Christian Andersen: Classic Fairy Tales collects 100 of Andersen's incomparable fairy tales and stories, among them "Thumbelina," "The Little Match Girl," "The Princess and the Pea," "The Red Shoes," "The Wild Swans," and his fantasy masterpiece, "The Snow-Queen." The book is abundantly illustrated with more than 100 hundred drawings and color plates by Dugald Stewart Walker and Hans Tegner, two of Andersen's best-known illustrators.



Basically I just want this book because it is gorgeous! Could also be interesting to see how his fairy tales got translated since I've only ever read them in danish. I already have a big book of his fairy tales in danish so wouldn't mind having this beauty on the shelf, too.
