In Hesse's biography, Hans Christian Andersen's early years are revealed through a series of very short narratives, told and illustrated in a page or two. Pleasingly, each section heading has the same title as an Andersen story, and a vignette presenting an incident in the boy's life.

In "What Father Does Is Always Right," the family's future hinges on a wealthy lady's acceptance of a pair of slippers Mr. Andersen had made for her.

The Ugly Duckling" was the story of Andersen's life. by Karen Hesse & illustrated by Erik Blegvad. Unattractive as a boy and subjected to teasing and taunting, he grew up to be a fabulously accomplished writer, courted by royalty and befriended by literary luminaries of his time. First you have a terribly hard time, and then you become famous," he said. This volume, a fitting celebration of the bicentennial of Andersen's birth, is a perfect match of evocative, poetic text and sumptuous watercolor and pen-and-ink illustrations  .

Hans Christian Anderson was born in the slums of Odense, Denmark

Hans Christian Anderson was born in the slums of Odense, Denmark. His parents were hardworking, and Hans received little formal education, but his childhood was his opening to the world of folklore and fairy tales. Much of his work depicts characters who gain happiness in life after suffering and conflicts and many of his childhood experiences inspired his most famous tales, such as The Ugly Duckling and The Little Mermaid.

Hesse tackled a more disturbing subject in the 2001 verse novel Witness. 2005 The Young Hans Christian Andersen (Scholastic, ISBN 978-0-439-6799). The Ku Klux Klan, re-invigorated in the 1920s (in this book, 1924 and '25) tries to take over a small Vermont town  .

  • Eric Blegvad's elegant pen and ink illustrations are delightful.

  • Just like the Booklist and School library Journal reviews on Amazon, I think this book is an excellent starter for younger readers that would like to learn about the life of Hans Christian Andersen. As for its older readers, the book at least takes the time to pinpoint the readers to other valuable documents, some that may be more rich on information and also on volumes that contain all the fairy tales by this great danish author. As for the concept of this book, which is to make links between incidents that occurred during Andersen's childhood and some of his stories.

    As for the illustrations, I felt the watercolors were very touching, especially the ones that concern Andersen's father. Not only that, I like that this book, unlike the True Lives: Hans Christian Andersen from the Oxford series, takes the time to also show the more tragic parts of Andersen's childhood instead of showing a romantic and clean version like the Oxford book, which I liked but then felt could have been further developed.

    As such, I think this book is a quite wonderful work from its authors who wanted to show us different aspects of Hans Christian Andersen's childhood. I do hope that they intend to do another volume with the same concept, but for his adulthood.
