Andersen's Fairy Tales

by Hans Christian Andersen


Andersen's fairy tales, consisting of 156 stories and translated into more than 125 languages, have become culturally embedded in the West's collective consciousness, readily accessible to children, but presenting lessons of virtue and resilience in the face of adversity for mature readers as well. His most famous fairy tales include "The Emperor's New Suit", "The Little Mermaid", "The Nightingale", "The Brave Tin Soldier", "The Red Shoes", "The Princess and the Pea", "The Snow Queen", "The Ugly Duckling", "The Little Match-seller", and "Thumbelina". His stories have inspired ballets, plays, and animated and live-action films.
