Book Description

2 April 2009 True Lives
Hans Andersen was a quiet child. He would sit for hours in the backyard, inventing stories for his toy theatre. He wanted to be an actor and a singer, but everyone said he would never do well on the stage. Instead he became a storyteller. His marvellous fairy tales, full of jokes and magic, have entranced children ever since. Other titles in the series: Amelia Earhart, Alexander the Great, Captain Cook, Cleopatra, Eric the Red Galileo, Gandhi, Henry Ford, Roald Dahl, Thomas Edison and William Shakespeare.

Format:Paperback
Filled with gorgeous watercolors covering aspects of Hans Christian Andersen's life, this small biography summarizes well the author's childhood, education and his career. Then again, I still felt that more details about his life could have been covered in his book (ex: his relationship with Charles Dickens, his storytelling techniques and his travels). Not only that, it would have been nice if this biography could have suggested at its final pages other volumes that covered Andersen's career, to encourage younger - but also older - readers of this book that would be interested to learn more on the subject.

As such, this book is a very good start to learn the most important points about Hans Christian Andersen's life. But one should not only rely on this book if the reader is doing a research on the author's life as I think that other books give more facts about this danish storyteller.
