The Emperor's New Clothes and Other Fairy Tales

The Emperor's New Clothes and Other Fairy Tales - Derek Jacobi, Anne-Marie Duff, David  Tennant, Penelope Wilton, Hans Christian Andersen
A little of what you fancy does you good ( Free Audio book on Audible.uk)

"Here are four of Hans Christian Andersen's best-loved short stories, specially adapted for young children and read by some of Britain's well-known actors. The Emperor's New Clothes: An emperor is promised a special suit of clothes by a pair of tailors. The Little Mermaid: A beautiful mermaid falls in love with a prince. The Fir Tree: A little fir tree is desperate to grow up and be like the other trees in the forest. The Wild Swans read by Penelope Wilton: A princess must rescue her brothers from a spell cast by a wicked queen.

What an excellent audio book, I just loved the narrators who made the stories so atmospheric and brought them to life, The background sounds of the sea, birds and trees really were beautiful. I enjoyed this little book so much and would recommend it for anyone who enjoys going back to their childhood for a little reminisce.
