When Hans Christian Andersen was a little boy, he treated storybooks as jewels to be treasured. He wanted to perform on stage but was always cast as the troll. Luckily through theatre, he found a love for writing. He wrote about both the ordinary and the fantastic, in stories like 'The Ugly Duckling' and 'The Little Mermaid,' never talking down to children. This inspiring story of the writer's life features a facts and photos section at the back.
Discover the lives of outstanding people from designers and artists to scientists in this book series. All of them went on to achieve incredible things, yet all of them began life as a little child with a dream.
