“We have placed Andersen’s name at the head of our list, in gratitude for the delight and amusement his stories for children have afforded us. When Fairy-land seemed lost to us, or peopled by a new race of utilitarians, who spoke its language and tried its spells in mere slavish imitation, without comprehending their use and meaning; a Poet from the North has made fresh flowers bloom there, and brought it back again to our hearts and eyes in brighter colors and stronger outlines than before.”—Christian Remembrancer.

“There is a child-like tenderness and simplicity in his writings—an elevation and purity of tone—which is the secret of the extreme charm his celebrated stories have for children. They are as simple and as touching as the old Bible narratives of Joseph and his Brethren, and the little lad who died in the corn field. We wonder not at their being the most popular books of their kind in Europe.’’—Mary Howitt.
