Brought to life by Academy Award®-winning actor F. Murray Abraham and an ensemble cast of narrators, and featuring original music by Michael Bacon, this collection contains Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved fairy tales, as well as a selection of lesser-known favorites.   Unlike the Brothers Grimm, who collected and retold folklore and fairy tales, Hans Christian Andersen adopted the most ancient literary forms and distilled them into a genre that was uniquely his own. His fairy tales are remarkable for their sense of fantasy, power of description, and vivid imagination. They are like no others written before or since.  Recognizing the literary merit of Andersen's own simple colloquial language, Erik Haugaard has remained faithful to the original text in the translation from Danish to English. Listeners will rediscover Hans Christian Andersen's best-known fairy tales, and find new favorites.   Stories:   The Princess and the Pea Thumbelina The Emperor's New Clothes The Steadfast Tin Soldier The Ugly Duckling The Little Mermaid The Little Match Girl The Wild Swans The Nightingale The Snow Queen "The Will-o'-the-Wisps are in Town," said the Bog Witch The Rags The Adventures of a Thistle Luck Can Be Found in a Stick The Days of the Week   Cast:   F. Murray Abraham Edoardo Ballerini Marisa Calin Cynthia Darlow Ari Fliakos Dion Graham January LaVoy Jennifer Lim Euan Morton Robert Petkoff Rebecca Soler Marc Thompson
