Download eight timeless audio tales from a magical storyteller.

This enchanting collection, retold by writer and critic Naomi Lewis, contains eight of Hans Christian Andersen's magnificent fairy tales. It includes Thumbelina, a little girl no more than a thumb-joint high, The Emperor's New Clothes, the tale of a man who cares only for his appearance and The Little Mermaid, who longs to one day marry a human prince.

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.

    " Hans Christian Anderson is one man who always makes me child again. His stories take me to a world full of magic and fairies and princesses and princes! I have read these stories as a child. I still have the same affection for those stories. Thumbelina is my all time favorite. I had an opportunity to visit the small Danish town in CA in Winter of 2009. They have a small library devoted to Hans Anderson. It was wonderful to sit in the presence on the man whom I will always love and cherish as the greatest story teller of all times. "
