About H.C. Andersen Illustrated Fairy Tales
Within the fairy tale treasury that has come into the world's possession, Hans Christian Andersen's tales are among some of the most outstanding. His spellbinding stories present deep moral lessons that span both cultural and generational differences.
A thread of optimism weaves its way through Andersen's stories, giving hope and inspiration to all readers. It is in this spirit that the Hans Christian Andersen Fairy Tale Classics are published.
We have selected 30 of the most popular tales and handpicked the best illustrators for each of them, taking great care to match the style of the illustrator with the specific story. Each tale talks to the heart through both words and pictures uncovering the very essence of life's values.
The first moral of the story is that beauty is a treasure, but graciousness is priceless. Without it, nothing is possible; with it, one can do anything.
However, the second moral of the story mitigates the first one and reveals the criticism that Perrault is aiming at: "Another moral: Without doubt it is a great advantage to have intelligence, courage, good breeding, and common sense. These, and similar talents come only from heaven, and it is good to have them. However, even these may fail to bring you success, without the blessing of a godfather or a godmother."
