Hans Christian Andersen

Hans Christian Andersen was a celebrated Danish author, who is perhaps best remembered for his fairy tales. Some of his most famous works include "The Princess and the Pea," "Thumbelina," "The Little Mermaid," and "The Emperor's New Clothes." Andersen's legacy is expansive; his works have been published in 125 languages, adapted into popular films, and laid the groundwork for stories like Kenneth Grahame's "Wind in the Willows" and A.A. Milne's "Winnie the Pooh."
