Books are the ultimate gift for young minds. A good one transports the reader to another world. An exceptional one stays with you long after its ending. The Fairy Tales of Hans Christian Andersen are often the initial gateway to a "magical" kingdom of imaginary characters for young ones. Children are introduced to such famous tales as "The Ugly Duckling" and "The Little Mermaid" - tales to entertain, but with a moral component as well. Many have tried to reinterpret his works through film and other means, but the original stories remain the most powerful.
