Since yesterday was Hans Christian Andersen's birthday, I wanted to share James Caraway's illustrations from our 1952, Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tales Wonder Book. This little gem contains three of Mr. Andersen's stories, The Emperor's New Clothes, Thumbelina, and The Little Mermaid.
Unfortunately this little book is now falling apart, I love vintage books, but they are sometimes so fragile that you may only get a few reads out of them before reading them becomes the thing that actually destroys them. So I hope you enjoy the illustrations as much as we do......
The Emperor’s New Clothes
The Little Mermaid
We read a lot of fairy tales in our house, do you?
