Description

The source for many of the stories of Hans Christan Andersen and Brothers Grimm, the Viking storytelling heritage offers a lively conversation with the natural world.

Character-forming moral fables, Viking and Nordic folk and fairy tales take the magic of the natural world and combine it with the practical common sense of the everyday. Good folk are rewarded for their hard work, the honest and the faithful are valued by the gods: treasured tales from Hans Christian Andersen, such as ‘The Little Match Girl’, and less well known stories such as ‘Katie Woodencloak’ (a Norwegian Version of Cinderella) by Asbjørnsen & Moe are some of the heartwarming pieces in this new selection for the modern reader.

Flame Tree Collector’s Editions present the foundations of speculative fiction, authors, myths and tales without which the imaginative literature of the twentieth century would not exist, bringing the best, most influential and most fascinating works into a striking and collectable library. Each book features a new introduction and a Glossary of Terms.
