Description
(Winner of the 2002 Danish HC Andersen Award and an ALA Notable Book) An odd little boy with an enormous nose, who was ridiculed by other children and struggled for many years before finding international fame writing fairy tales like "The Ugly Duckling," "The Little Mermaid," and "The Nightingale," Hans Christian Andersen lived a life very much like a fairy tale—particularly as Hjørdis Varmer (himself a leading author of contemporary Danish children's books) tells the story in this book for all ages. Andersen's own paper cuttings and drawings find their way into the book as well, incorporated into Lilian Brøgger's spirited and artistic illustrations of ink, paint, and collage, which won the Danish HC Andersen Award. Brøgger has twice been a finalist for the better-known IBBY Hans Christian Andersen Medal.
