Written for young children with all the warmth, wit, and character of the 19th-century originals, this collection, previously published as Elf Hill, offers a rich mix of fairy and toy tales from the master of the form. Naomi Lewis’s translations capture the poetry of Andersen’s simple style, while Emily Chichester Clark’s colorful art finds the vibrancy and whimsy in these stories. From elaborate tableaux to piquant vignettes, the illustrations resonate for both fans and new readers with their images of elves and trolls cavorting in the woods and toys comically assuming human airs in the playroom.

Here is a wonderful toy-box overflowing with sparkling new translations of Hans Christian Andersen stories, written for young children with all the warmth, wit and character of the 19th-century originals. Emma Chichester-Clark's combination of magical images combined with Naomi Lewis's beautiful writing to make this an anthology which will be sought after, much-read and greatly treasured.
