I was really looking forward to reading these well known and loved tales but i'm half way through and just can't wait to finish the book. The translation just dorsnt work in this edition, the stories just do not flow and i struggle to remember what on earth ive just read at the end of each tale. This is sn old penguin classic edition so i hope that newer editions have been translated by somebody else
I bought this for my sister as a Christmas present as she doesn't know any nursery rhymes or Hans Christian Andersen tales ( the strange girl!) I haven't given it to her yet but I'm sure she'll like it. It was very well packaged and was delivered quickly.
