Lavishly illustrated by award-winning artist Gennady Spirin, this spectacular collection gathers together six of the most beloved stories by master storyteller Hans Christian Andersen. The characters in these tales, from the loyal little mermaid to the brave tin soldier to the ugly duckling, learn life lessons from the experiences they encounter, lessons that are still vital to the way we live today. And Gennady Spirins delicate watercolors, in the tradition of the great masters of the Renaissance, bring these enchanted characters and their valuable lessons magically to life. Together, the pictures and tales combine to create a timeless collection of classic stories that deserve a special place on every bookshelf.

Stories included:
The Princess and the Pea
The Brave Tin Soldier
The Ugly Duckling
The Nightingale
