    1. Good gravy but something was wrong with Hans Christian Anderson If household objects aren t chatting about their social status, then people are dying in the streets of Copenhagen I mean, seriously I knew the original story of The Little Mermaid, but my kids didn t The horror on their faces was priceless I also knew the basic story of The Snow Queen, mostly from the Faerie Tale Theatre version I d never read the whole thing I think the best part was when Gerda asks the flowers if they ve seen Kai [...]

    3. I had heard that Hans Christian Andersen s fairy tale had a religious bent, but I didn t fully appreciate that detail until I started reading Classic Fairy Tales I lost track of the number of stories that or less ended with And then the person found God So he died because now he could go to heaven And yes, I get that mortality was a much central part of society at that point in history But, well, death after some of the trials these characters overcame wasn t much in the way of a satisfying ha [...]

    4. About Classic Fairy Tales is a collection of the Danish author Hans Christian Anderson s fairy tales, which were all written in the 19th century This collection includes some well known stories such as The Little Mermaid , The Ugly Duckling and The Snow Queen as well as many stories that are not quite as well known There is a good mix in this collection of stories with a fairy tale bent and others that seem realistic There is also a good mix of stories that seem to have been written for childre [...]

    5. The reason that classic fairy tales are interesting is that you ll get insight into the morality of the time and place they were set in What I ve gathered from this book is that 19th century Denmark considered morality to be a pure Christian This book is far interesting than it is entertaining The fairy tales themselves are all either dependent on the Christian god coming to help, or ends tragically There are exceptions, like The Emperor s New Clothes and The Saucy Boy that doesn t end like tha [...]

    7. Holy cow it took me forever to finish this book These stories were, for the most part, weird There were definitely some I liked than others and some that just seemed to drag on and on and on and on and on.There was also a ton of death and talking inanimate objects pretending to be people in various class states.

    8. A compilation book of Hans Christian Anderson s classics The Emperors New Clothes, The Princess and the Pea etc All the stories have a moral to be learned and contain a lot of vocabulary in story book form A good basis for teaching the genre of traditional literature in the older grades.Grade level 3 5Reading level 5.6Lexile 860LGuided reading level L

    9. Very good book As with Fairytales there is always a moral to the story Some are sad while others happy I have some favorites in this book but hopefully you ll find your own favorites and perhaps learn a thing or two as I did.

    10. I have always liked fairy tales, and these besides the Grimm s Fairy Tales are a classic everyone should read and have in their home These are stories you are going to go back to again and again These stories are classics.

    11. Some of the stories were quite strange, some were very good, some were both Some of the stories were just about how awesome God and heaven are, which I found quite boring My favorites by far were Under the Willow Tree, The Wild Swans, The Little Mermaid, and The Ice Maiden.

    12. Today, at the age of 22, I still enjoy rereading these classics It has been a while since I read the entire book, however, they re still worth it D

    13. I havemt read all the stories in this yet but I m taking my time and picking through it and reading stories randomly.

    14. most of the story s are much the same in the end the horror s the poor man caused are excused because of his poverty and marries a beautiful rich princess and live happily ever after.

    15. This is such a beautiful volume of these classics I m glad I chose this version when I decided to buy Andersen s fairy tales.

    16. I love this book The stories are pure magic and are so much fun to read They are short and addictive and you can t help reading just one I highly recommend this book to anyone.
