The Best Stories of Hans Christian Andersen

A selection of the most representative stories of Hans Christian Andersen in a carefully prepared edition which conserves all the spontaneity of the originals and is illustrated by Jordi Vila i Delclòs. The illustrations are both lyrical and realistic and are characterised by their precision and by how faithfully they capture the atmosphere. This is a collection of popular stories that elevates them to the level of universal classics.
