Hans Christian Andersen: His Fairy Tale Life

This beautifully illustrated biography commemorates the bicentennial of Hans Christian Andersen’s birth. Written by one of Denmark’s best-known children’s authors, Hjørdis Varmer, the book chronicles the fairy-tale like story of Andersen’s life, describing how the eccentric Andersen came from a poor family, was ridiculed by other children, and struggled for many years before finally finding world-wide fame writing fairy tales such as The Ugly Duckling, Thumbelina, and The Nightingale.

Award-winning illustrator Lilian Brøgger’s highly original illustrations bring out the true spirit of the famous storyteller and incorporate many of Andersen’s own paper cuttings and drawings, making this children’s book one to be cherished.
