This beautiful book, originally published in 1913, contains a collection of seventeen classic fairy tales by Hans Christian Andersen. Stories include, The March King's Daughter, The Snow Queen, The Storks, The Real Princess, The Little Mermaid, The Ugly Duckling and more.

These classic tales are accompanied by 16 incredible colour illustrations many beautiful and intricate black and white drawings by W. Heath Robinson. An English cartoonist and illustrator, best known for drawings of ridiculously complicated machines - for achieving deceptively simple objectives. Such was (and is) his fame, that the term 'Heath Robinson' entered the English language during the First World War, as a description of any unnecessarily complex and implausible contrivance.

Hans Christian Andersen (1805 - 1875) was a Danish writer. He wrote many poems, travelogues, and plays, but he is most famous for his fairy tales, which have been translated into over 125 languages and continue to have a significant influence on western popular culture. This timeless collection would make for a worthy addition to any child's bookshelf and is not to be missed by fans and collectors of Andersen's illustrated works.

We are republishing it here as part of our 'Pook Press' imprint, celebrating the golden age of illustration in children's literature.
