    This Penguin 60 s edition is a selection of short stories taken from Hans Christian Andersen s fairy tales collection.The Emperors New Clothes is the known story, some others somewhat familiar, some quite original.Andersen has a talent for bringing the inanimate to life in this selection a brass pig, a matchstick, a bottle.Being 9 10th of the way through The Book of Thousand Nights and One Night, these stories somehow don t hold the same level of interest, but that is always going to be a hard This Penguin 60 s edition is a selection of short stories taken from Hans Christian Andersen s fairy tales collection.The Emperors New Clothes is the known story, some others somewhat familiar, some quite original.Andersen has a talent for bringing the inanimate to life in this selection a brass pig, a matchstick, a bottle.Being 9 10th of the way through The Book of Thousand Nights and One Night, these stories somehow don t hold the same level of interest, but that is always going to be a hard act to follow.For me these sit in the three to four star range, but probably 3 in this case
