    Hans Christian Andersen is one of the world's 10 most translated authors, and you only have to listen to understand why. He brings a silly sensibility to stories that showcase the triumph of the downtrodden (the ugly duckling that turns into a beautiful swan) and the downfall of the triumphant (the emperor whose arrogance won't allow him to admit that he's parading in public without any clothes).
