This beautifully illustrated biography commemorates the bicentennial of Hans Christian Andersen's birth. Written by one of Denmark's best-known children's authors, Hj#65533;rdis Varmer, the book chronicles the fairy-tale like story of Andersen's 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 Br#65533;gger's highly original illustrations bring out the true spirit of the famous storyteller and incorporate many of Andersen's own paper cuttings and drawings, making this children's book one to be cherished.
