    " The Little Mermaid and other tales is a collection of wonderful classic fairy tales in teir untouched form. My favorite stories are The little Mermaid, The Little Match Girl, and The Rose Elf. All rolled (with more) into one must-have collection. "

    " Hah hah! Only kidding. This story is waaaaaay too disturbing for children! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nichole | 6/24/2013

    " This is the depressing closer to the original version with religious overtones! Sweet! Keep Victorian ideals out of your kid's fairy tales with this copy! (I am not even being sarcastic really). "

    " These are the real fairy tales and not all of them end up happy ever after. Sometimes things do not always work out as we had hoped. Still Hans Christian Andersen was a wonderful story teller and I love his work. "

    " These are the original fairy tales by Hans Christian Andersen and much darker without all happy endings like the disney versions. But love the emporers clothes and the princess and the pea. "

    " This is such a great book my favorite part of the book was the story of the Little Mermaid even though I still prefer Disney's version way much better. "

    " Surprised to find that the real version of this story does not end happily ever after. Worried about which other stories disney has adulterated. "

About the Author
Author Hans Christian Andersen

Hans Christian Andersen (1805–1875) was born in Odense, Denmark, the son of a poor shoemaker and a washerwoman. As a young teenager, he became quite well known in Odense as a reciter of drama and as a singer. When he was fourteen, he set off for the capital, Copenhagen, determined to become a national success on the stage. He failed miserably, but made some influential friends in the capital who got him into school to remedy his lack of proper education. In 1829 his first book was published. After that, books came out at regular intervals. His stories began to be translated into English as early as 1846. Since then, numerous editions, and more recently Hollywood songs and Disney cartoons, have helped to ensure the continuing popularity of the stories in the English-speaking world.
