The Fairy Tales of Hans Christian Andersen

I love children’s stories that are passed on from one generation to the next and can still be loved as much, many years on.  Parragon Books have published a lovely hardback book today with a collection of The Fairy Tales of Hans Christian Andersen.

The Fairy Tales of Hans Christian Andersen

The Fairy Tales of Hans Christian Andersen has 192 pages and contains 8 classic tales from the Danish author, retold by Mandy Archer.

The tales featured are:

The Little Mermaid, The Emperor’s New Clothes, The Ugly Duckling, The Fir Tree, The Snow Queen, The Nightingale, The Princess and the Pea and The Steadfast Tin Soldier.

I liked the selection of stories, some that Monkey already knows well, and others like The Fir Tree, that we read together for the first time.

The Ugly Duckling is a firm family favourite and it’s a story that just doesn’t age at all.

The Fairy Tales of Hans Christian Andersen

This is a lovely collection and would make a great present for Christmas or birthdays. Classic stories and a book that can be kept for future generations to enjoy.

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school.We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds.We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.
