Audible Editor Reviews

Renowned Danish author Hans Christian Andersen has inspired movies, statues, and even theme parks. Though his fairy tales weren't immediately embraced by the reading public upon their publication, the world has since made up for its lapse in judgment, as Andersen's name is now virtually synonymous with children's literature.
Actress Angele Masters performs the beloved stories in this collection in a lively, bright English accent to which both children and adults can relate. Her voice sustains the 40-plus hours of narration required to bring life to all these fairy tales. The stories are arranged in somewhat idiosyncratic alphabetical order, beginning with "A Story" and ending with "The Story of the Year".
