Wonderful Stories for Children

(1846)
A collection of stories by

 
 
Bring back the nostalgia of your childhood with this classic volume of short stories by Hans Christian Andersen. The Danish author is best remembered for his popular fairy tales, including The Little Mermaid, The Ugly Duckling, The Emperor's New Clothes, The Snow Queen, and many more. Now, immerse yourself in the same world of enchantment and fantasy through Wonderful Stories For Children.

This volume collects some of the lesser known stories written by Hans Christian Andersen, with the one exception being The Constant Tin Soldier. The complete list of stories in this volume includes: Shut-Eye, The Daisy, The Naughty Boy, Tommelise, The Rose-Elf, The Garden of Paradise, A Night in the Kitchen, Little Ida's Flowers, The Constant Tin Soldier, and The Storks.

Wonderful Stories For Children is embedded with timeless morals, namely virtue and resilience in the face of adversity. The genius of Hans Christian Andersen lies in taking everyday things and elevating them to wonderfully fantastic proportions, as can be seen in Little Ida's Flowers, one of the longer stories of this collection.

A review for this collection by the London journal, Athenaeum, in 1846 still holds true today : "This is a book full of life and fancy; a book for grandfathers no less than grandchildren, not a word of which will be skipped by those who have it once in hand."

Open the gates to your imagination - adults and children alike will enjoy this timeless classic!
