Read full description of the books:
The classic version of these tales and not always the happy-ending Disney versions, thus it might not always make the best bedtime story for younger readers or listeners.
32 Anderson tales and 35 of The Brothers Grimm fairy Tales. Includes many of the most popular fairy tales as well as some lesser-known ones.
I have a bit of a binding fetish and I fell in love with the red silk binding and gold embossed cover of this one, red ribbon marker to keep your place, nice paper weight, and the classic illustrations. Beautiful book!

Read information about the authorHans Christian Andersen (often referred to in Scandinavia as H. C. Andersen; April 2, 1805 – August 4, 1875) was a Danish author and poet. 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, or "fairy-tales"—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 Little Mermaid", "The Ugly Duckling", "The Nightingale", "The Emperor's New Clothes" and many more. His stories have inspired plays, ballets, and both live-action and animated films.
