Book is in overall excellent condition - clean, bright, beautiful illustrations by Arthur Szyk. This is the 1945 Grosset & Dunlap edition. There are nearly thirty stories in this volume and many have either a color illustration or a black ink illustration.
So many stories written by Hans Christian Andersen have been adapted to the screen. Disney presented The Little Mermaid in 1989 (although that story is not in this edition).
Shelley Duvall filmed a number of these Andersen tales for her "Faerie Tale Theatre" series including The Princess & The Pea, The Snow Queen, and The Emperor's New Clothes, all in this book.
