Every man's life is a fairy-tale written by God's fingers. Hans Christian Andersen Although April 2, Andersen's birthday, is celebrated as International Childrens Book Day, the beloved Dane and author of more than 138 fairy tales, wrote with a depth and sentiment that far exceeded mere bedtime stories. Few tales have been told that match the wit of The Emperor s New Clothes, the poignancy of The Little Match Girl or the redemptive purity of The Wild Swans. Listeners both young and young-at-heart will enjoy this collection of freshly-narrated classic tales.

Hans Christian Andersen was born in Odense, Denmark, in 1805. At the age of 14 he went to Copenhagen to become an actor. He failed and instead went back to school, where he was very unhappy. He published his first book, an account of a walking trip in 1829. From then on he wrote many books, finding his true voice in his original fairy stories, which often had their basis in his life. He died in 1875.Language Notes:
