Andersen's Fairy Tales

by Andersen, Hans Christian

Analysis: Tough-o-Meter

We've got your back. With the Tough-O-Meter, you'll know whether to bring extra layers or Swiss army knives as you summit the literary mountain. (10 = Toughest)

Base Camp (4)

Some of these tales are pretty simple, and could be read to/by kids. Others are more complex, addressing Big Life Questions like what happens after we die and what makes our lives meaningful. Still, the language isn't too complicated, and the plots aren't hard to follow. So read on without fear!
