Item description for Andersen: The Illustrated Fairy Tales Of Hans Christian Andersen by Robert Klanten...

Building on the success of Grimm, dgv is publishing an illustrated selection of fairy tales by Hans Christian Andersen in commemoration of his 200th birthday in 2005. As in Grimm, the original texts of the traditional stories are combined with contemporary visuals -- a mix that proved to be popular with a broad general audience from children to grandparents.

The Andersen book contains 11 fairy tales including classics such as "The Ugly Duckling", "The Emperor's New Clothes" and "The Snow Queen", which is actually seven stories in one. A different international designer has lavishly illustrated each one so that every two-page spread in the book features at least one image. Featuring very different styles, the book is not only conceived for design-conscious adults, but also made to be read together with children.

Andersen gives readers the chance to rediscover familiar fairy tales in a new way and it makes an ideal gift.

Reviews - What do customers think about Andersen: The Illustrated Fairy Tales Of Hans Christian Andersen?

Beautiful edition of a classis  Nov 22, 2007
As another review noted, the illustrations in this gorgeous edition of Anderson's Fairy Tales are a bit creepy, and probably not suitable for a very young child. They are, however, very beautiful and make a wonderful counterpart to Anderson's very creepy tales. All of the pictures are a bit "modern," very bright, and the print quality is very high.
Scary Pictures  Aug 10, 2006
I was looking for a book with illustrations suitable for a young child, so my daughter would be able to look at some pictures while I was reading to her. Unfortunately, most of the illustrations in this book are rather scary. I don't think I can have her look at those without causing her to have nightmares. The fairy tales are first class, of course.
