Wonderful Stories for Children is collection of stories by H. C. Andersen. Andersen was a Danish author, playwright and literary fairy teller. Excerpt: "Poor Tommelise lived all that long summer, though quite alone, in the great wood. She wove herself a bed of grass, and hung it under a large plantain leaf, so that the rain could not come to her; she fed from the honey of the flowers, and drank of the dew which stood in glittering drops every morning on the grass. Thus passed the summer and the autumn; but now came winter, the cold, long winter."
