Hans Christian Andersen’s Fairy Tales

Hans Christian Andersen’s Fairy TalesIn keeping with the trend of introducing my boys to fairy tales and nursery rhymes, I picked up this beautiful hardback book last week. There were many different options for Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale books, but this one was by far the most beautiful. Lisbeth Zwerger is an award-winning illustrator famous for her depictions of popular fairy tales. Her style is unmistakable – ink wash drawings enhanced with watercolors of beautiful, muted shades of brown and blue. It has been said that there is no one better at illustrating the stories of Hans Christian Andersen than Lisbeth Zwerger.
Andersen’s Fairy Tales by Lisbeth Zwerger includes 11 different tales all illustrated in her signature style. It’s a large hardback book, perfect for a coffee table or bedside table.
I just love buying books for my kids that I know will be passed down for generations. This book is one of them!  It’s available at Amazon US and UK !
