Eighteen enduring fables from one of the world’s best-loved storytellers

Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tales have long delighted millions of readers, young and old, and inspired myriad film, stage, and musical adaptations. This collection, including beloved classics “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” “The Snow Queen” (the basis for the blockbuster film Frozen), and “The Little Match Girl,” is the perfect introduction to Andersen’s groundbreaking use of plain language and realistic settings to explore life’s great mysteries. Inspired by the ancient Danish legends and stories from Arabian Nights that his father told him, Andersen composed his fables to be read aloud, and approached difficult subjects and complex truths with a directness that children and adults still find refreshing nearly two centuries later.

From “The Red Shoes” to “The Dream of Little Tuk,” this selection of Hans Christian Andersen fairy tales is a must-have for readers who already know his work by heart, and those discovering the singular power of his imagination for the very first time.

Summary: I read the emperor's new clothes. This is a story about a pompous king who only cared about his lavish wardrobe and not his kingdom. One day some swindlers came to town and told him that they could make him this wonderful new wardrobe for an exordinant fee. The swindlers set up looms and began to weave the clothes from this imaginary invisible magic fabric. When they were done the king was walking around naked in his supposed new wardrobe. No one wanted to defy the king so they never told him that they couldn't see his new wardrobe.Personal reaction: I thought this was a very humorous way to tell a story about selfishness, greed, and conceit.Classroom Extension Ideas: This story can be used to talk about the power of persuasion.This story can be used to discuss lying.read more
