Review: The Tinderbox (Penguin Little Black Classic #23) by Hans Christian Andersen
The Tinder Box (Little Black Classics #23) - Hans Christian Andersen

Goodreads summary:

Though criticised for their anarchic immorality when first published, Hans Christian Andersen's tales made him an international star, taken to the hearts of children and adults for their beauty, sorrow and strangeness. Included here are 'The Steadfast Tin Soldier' and 'Big Claus and Little Claus'.
 

My opinion:

There are six fairy tales in this collection: The Tinderbox, Little Claus and Big Claus, The Princess on the Pea, The Steadfast Tin Soldier, The Nightingale and The Red Shoes. Out of those fairy tales I liked The Tinderbox and The Steadfast Tin Soldier the most. I just wished they would have included his most famous fairy tale: The Little Mermaid. However, this is a great collection if you don't know where to start with his work and are not sure yet if you want to read all his fairy tales. 

 

What is your opinion about Andersen? What is your favorite fairy tale by him?
