The Tinder Box (Little Black Classics #23)

The Tinder Box (Little Black Classics #23) - Hans Christian Andersen Hans Christian Andersen was a 19th Century Danish writer best know for fairy tales and short fables, though he was a prolific writer of plays, novels and poetry.

This is a selection of the lesser-known fairy tales written by Andersen. I've not read any of his other works though I'm well versed in the outside knowledge and I have to say I was disappointed in how terribly they were written and how blasé they seemed as a whole. Although I'm sure some of their charm must have been lost in translation, I still can't say I enjoyed any of them.
