Part of a series of illustrated biographies aiming to introduce children to historical characters in a fun way. Each book tells the story of a remarkable person from the past, whose name and achievements have lived on far beyond their own time. Each of these international characters has a timeline and index for easy reference. The biographies link in with National Curriculum KS1 and KS2, and the titles have been chosen to cover a range of characters and to have both national and international appeal. This book in the series looks at the life and works of Hans Christian Andersen.
