This is a great collection of Hans Christian Andersen's tales. Although it is not actually a "complete" set, there are some really great stories. I particularly liked The Little Match Girl, The Ugly Duckling, The Little Mermaid, and many others. They are very different tales, but are still very good, they just don't fit the "normal" Americanized fairy tales.

A glorious collection. Sublime story telling and stories. Some of it not suitable for everyone, and some stories are dark and depressing,though this is important art and writing to remember, tried and true lessons on love, and the importance of doing right. Useful in the classroom for a fairy/folk tale unit, inspiring to research H.C Andersen, Scandinavia, paper cuts. ( )

Hans Christian Andersen are great stories for kids. A bit less dark then the Grimm's Brothers, but still a little dangerous and interesting. These stories just do not get old. You can read them time and again and they only get better when they are shared. ( )
