Hans Christian Anderson is a remarkable writer; his version of The Little Mermaid about had me in tears towards the end. My two younger girls listened to these with me and enjoyed the stories as well, although they had a lot of questions about a few of them.

There are some adult themes which might require filtering depending on age. There is one story where a character commits suicide, and there are a few violent scenes throughout the entire volume. The stories really cover the entire spectrum of human emotion, although nothing is described in particularly graphic terms.

The stories are beautifully and clearly narrated, and some of the passages were positively haunting. They've chosen a good translation as well; I think it keeps closely to the feel of the original text.

There are all types of stories, too; long, complex ones, but also shorter, simple narratives, and then everything in between. Some of the stories are dark, and some cheerful. Anderson's stories are set in various countries and feature all ages of protagonists (some who are human, and some not). I would highly recommend these for anyone who wants thought-provoking, intense fairy tales and moving narration.

Hans Christian Andersen is a bit twisted in my opinion. His fairy tales are nothing like the ones my mother told me. I don't want to ruin the book but this isn't a book for children more for adults who like a more bizarre story telling book.

We just got this book for my 8 year old daughter and I've been reading the stories to her. This book shows what a truly great story teller Hans Christian Anderson was! His stories sparkle! When I first got the book I was disappointed because the pictures are not at all spectacular. Upon reading the stories, the pictures don't matter at all. Anderson paints the pictures in your mind and you are just transported into his stories. The words are the pictures. My daughter and I are both enjoying this wonderful literature! I highly recommend the book to anyone wanting to introduce their child to truly wonderful classics.

This translation of the original Danish seem to match well the stories I grew up to like back in Scandinavia. If you want to get close to the mind of HC Andersen, this is a good bet.

For younger children some of the stories may be inappropriate. For example, "the Red Shoes" has a girl getting her feet chopped off for her sins. In general, HC didn't necessarily believe in happy endings, so be aware. This is a non-Disney fairy tale book.

The book's binding and pages are a bit stiff, but not overly. It is not too heavy either, so it works well when reading loud in bed.

I was just a bit disappointed because the snow queen story wasn't in the book. The rest of the stories are priceless.

This is a great edition, and the translation may also be great as some people say... But the serigraphy work in the cover is just horrible! The pink paint simply melts at my fingertips while I hold the book. I also bought the clothbound edition of Tales from 1.001 Nights , and the problem with it is the same. Very disappointing, since I expect a Penguin book to be of superior quality in all aspects.
