5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely book, 29 Aug 2011

This review is from: The Orchard Book of Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tales (Hardcover)
This is a lovely book with nine traditional stories retold by Martin Waddell (Princess and the Pea, Ugly duckling, Little match Girl, Emperor's New Clothes etc) with delightful illustrations. I am looking forward to reading them all to my class of y2/3s as part of our topic on 'Traditional Tales'.

This review is from: The Orchard Book of Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tales (Hardcover)
This is a beautiful book - in every sense of the word. Magical stories (not all with a happy Disneyish ending!!) The illustrations are just beautiful. When I read The Little Mermaid to my class some of the children were almost moved to tears and remarked "That's better than the film." We were then able to discuss story endings in a very meaningful way and the children suggested alternative endings - only one or two plumped for the "happy ever after" so beloved of modern tales. I would heartily recommend this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars The great tales edited for younger children, 1 Feb 2013

This review is from: The Orchard Book of Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tales (Hardcover)
Not the greatest rendition of the tales I have seen, but probably more child friendly for the toddler age. Probably wouldn't buy this version again.
