Description: Andersen's classic fairy tale, re-told in simple language for younger readers.
Beautiful colour illustrations throughout – several of which are full-page.
Glazed pictorial boards. Spine and corners lightly bumped. Upper-right corner on front cover badly bumped and rubbed – resulting in some negligible wear to the pastedown. Light lovebite on upper edge of front cover. There is also some loss (3½ cm) to the rear pastedown. Despite the damage, the pages themselves are in superb condition: crisp, bright, unmarked, and very tightly bound.
