The power of Andersen’s tales to charm and elevate runs like a living thread through whatever he writes. His books have met the tests and held an undiminishing popularity among the best of children's books. They have set the standard, and their place in permanent literature will grow wider and more secure as time passes. Only a few children's authors will, and should, be ranked among the Immortals, and Hans Andersen is without a doubt one of them.
That the genial author travelled widely for a man of his time, has enabled him to add charm to the stories in this volume. Almost everywhere he went he was urged to tell the tales himself. Even though he had become world famous, he did with equal measures of charm and grace in the kitchens of the humble and in the courts of nobles and palaces of kings.
Wherever there are children to read, the stories of Hans Christian Andersen will be read and loved.
