Hans Andersen wrote many stories, and these are some of the best.
We meet a very, very small child, a bird with a beautiful voice, a
mermaid with legs, an ugly duckling with no friends – and an
emperor with some very strange new clothes. These stories teach us
lessons for life. Penguin Readers are written by specialist ELT
authors. The language, vocabulary, style and content of every book
is carefully graded to make sure it suits the learner's own
language ability. Every Penguin Reader has a range of activities in
the book and accompanying Factsheet to help increase comprehension
and develop reading, writing, listening and speaking skills.
