Young Hans Christian knew how life should be--just like a fairy tale. But, while he was growing up in Odense, Denmark, his life didn't seem much like a fairy tale. Although everyone was telling him to stop daydreaming and find a job in a trade, he found fame writing fairy tales like "e;The Little Mermaid,"e; "e;Princess on the Pea,"e; and "e;The Emperor's New Clothes."e; A Fairy-Tale Life tells the story of Hands Christian Andersen, the world's best-loved teller of tales.
