The steadfast tin soldier
1st American ed.
One of Hans Christian Andersen's most romantic tales, The Steadfast Tin Soldier tells the story of a one-legged tin soldier who suffers a terrible fate all for the love of a beautiful paper dancer. Cursed by a jealous goblin, the toy solider is sent flying out the window to the street below, where a perilous adventure carries him ever further from his love. But throughout his ordeal, the soldier remains sturdy and staunch on his one leg, ever true to his beloved little dancer. The story's humor and pathos are perfectly reflected in Gianni de Conno's charming illustrations.
