This beautifully illustrated biography commemorates the bicentennial of Hans Christian Andersens birth. Written by one of Denmarks best-known childrens authors, Hjrdis Varmer, the book chronicles the fairy-tale like story of Andersens life, describing how the eccentric Andersen came from a poor family, was ridiculed by other children, and struggled for many years before finally finding world-wide fame writing fairy tales such as The Ugly Duckling, Thumbelina, and The Nightingale.

Award-winning illustrator Lilian Brggers highly original illustrations bring out the true spirit of the famous storyteller and incorporate many of Andersens own paper cuttings and drawings, making this childrens book one to be cherished.
