7) The Stories of Hans Christian Andersen, translated and edited by Jeffrey Frank and Diana Crone Frank

I thought this was a tremendously good presentation of the great HCA stories; some of them of course I knew from the various versions of my childhood, but all of them (Except the very short "Princess and the Pea") have something a little more in the original. For once, the introduction was interesting and the endnotes helpful; a really good presentation from Granta.
