Hans Christian Andersen (1805–1875) is one of the most popular authors of children’s books worldwide, who published more than 150 books to the delight of his fans all around the globe. The author’s true power lies in the ever so expressive, but simple language he writes, portraying the fine vibrations of the soul and it’s depths, defining the processes of our ponderings and dreams in a style which is second to none. He teaches us that appearances may be deceptive, and that in order to find true love and beauty, we must look into the very heart of each-other’s nature. Many creatures come to life in his tales; characters from the realms of magic, poetry, legends and reality. Kings and queens, inhabitants of lands unknown, mermaids, fairies, goblins, plants and animals are all part of the vibrant imagination of Hans Christian Andersen. This unique compilation of tales was illustrated by G. TOT Tóth Gábor, who harnesses his talent and experience to convey pictures from the lively, magical world of Andersen to the reader.
