Summary

"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 Children's Book Day, the beloved Dane and author of more than 138 fairytales, 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.

Very dark, not for children, these unabridged are

I bought this to share with children but you cant let them listen as they will have nightmares. Dreadful reading it hurt the ears and horrible stories. I wanted the nice ones and no warning, be careful if you buy this
