Hans Christian Andersen, the Danish storyteller, was born in 1805. Although he was the son of a poor shoemaker, he longed to make his living by writing. After many struggles, he finally became known as a poet, but today it is his fairy tales that are best loved.  Perhaps the secret of Andersen’s success is that he wrote his stories, as he told a friend, as if he were telling them to a child.
Jacob Ludwig Carl Grimm was born in 1785 in Germany. His brother Wilhelm Carl came along a year later. Both brothers loved the German language and the stories that were  told in it. In 1812, they published their first collection of folk and fairy tales, collected from all over Germany. Many of the stories had been told for centuries, enchanting children and adults with their mixture of magic and mystery. The brothers went on to make other collections and their books were soon translated around the world.
