This title discovers the life of Hans Christian Andersen, the father of fairy tales. When Hans Christian Andersen was a little boy, he treated storybooks as jewels to be treasured. He wanted to perform on stage, but was always cast as the troll. Luckily, through theatre, he found a love for writing. He wrote about both the ordinary and fantastic, in stories like 'The Ugly Duckling' and 'The Little Mermaid', never talking down to children. This book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the writer's life.
