    The Fir Tree Hans Christian Andersen The Fir Tree The Fir Tree by Hans Christian Andersen AR down in the forest, where the warm sun and the fresh air made a sweet resting place, grew a pretty little fir tree and yet it was not happy, it wished so much to be tall like its companions the pines and firs which grew around it The sun shone, and the soft air fluttered its leaves, and the little peasant children passed by, prattling merrily, but the fir tree Short Stories The Fir Tree by Hans Christian Andersen The Fir Tree stood quite still and absorbed in thought the birds in the wood had never related the like of this Humpy Dumpy fell downstairs, and yet he married the princess Yes, yes That s the way of the world thought the Fir Tree, and believed it all, because the man who told the story was so good looking.

    I think I am going to have to stop reading anything by Hans Christian Andersen, and go on to something more light-hearted and optimistic, such as Russian literature perhaps (insert icon for irony here). But here goes The Fir Tree is a fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen, published in 1844, at the same time as his other deeply pessimistic tale "The Snow Queen"link herefor my review. And now I find I can't bear to relive this story in much detail, in order to review it properly. But I'll attempt [...]

    درخت کاج کوچولویی توی جنگلی بی نهایت زیبا زندگی می کرد، پرنده ها روش می نشستن، سنجاب ها روی شاخه هاش بازی می کردن، اما اون به هیچ کدوم از این ها توجه نداشت و می خواست فقط رشد کنه و بزرگ بشه، دائم نگران این بود که بزرگ بشه و مثل درخت های کاج بزرگی که قطع شون می کردن، قطع بشه و بره ب [...]

    First, the edition that I received has a spectacular cover! I have never read anything by Hans Cristian Andersen! I loved the illustrations, and wow the story itself was a depressing one. It had me feeling pretty sorry for the tree! Full review on my blog literarydust.wordpress/20

    Lovely read about our need to be able to appreciate things as long as we have them. Also very, very sad. Plus, the cover for this edition is stunning!

    Meget fin, dog noget sørgelig historie. Men med en morale i top, som kun H.C Andersen kan bedst, hvor min datter og jeg efter endt læsning fik en god og lang snak om at man skal være glad for det man har, og være i tiden man er i. Og ikke mindst at jeg skal blive lidt bedre til, at være til stede - altså sådan generelt. Men hvem kan ikke blive bedre til det med al den teknologi og forstyrrelser, som vi er en del af i næsten alle døgnets 24 timer.

    Out in the woods amongst his many large companions, a little fir tree is keen to grow up. Listen here: bbc/iplayer/episode/2* A Country Christmas3* A Killer's Christmas in Wales5* A Child's Christmas in Wales (re-visit for nth time) 3* The Fir Tree

    Original Review on: pastriesandnovelthoughts.weeblSo, let's start with the outside of this book-it is stunning. The book itself, The Fir Tree, is a lesson on appreciation. Appreciation of what we have, who we are and the things we are surrounded with. It's a beautifully sad story but an important one. In this book we learn to enjoy life and the little things in it. You learn to understand that taking your days for granted can make life pass you by without you even noticing.Even though the story [...]

    From BBC Radio 4 Extra:Out in the woods amongst his many large companions, a nice little fir tree is keen to grow up. Read by Paul Copley.

    First and foremost, the story itself isn't anything particularly grand. It has a moral and I can view how, at the time of it being written, it was a wonderful and perhaps innovative. There's an imagination here that you don't always get in stories (even those that are deemed successful or popular). Having said that, there's really nothing splendid about the story and any kind of magic that one may expect from a Christmas story just seeps away after the first few words. However, I will include pr [...]

    Moving fable by Hans Christian Andersen which illustrates the old adage, "be careful what you wish for…" Reading it in the 21st century, it takes on ecological and environmental themes as well. Thanks, NetGalley, for introducing me to Sanna Annukka's stunning artwork! This one will also make its way to both my personal and classroom libraries.

    Always loved Andersen's tales, and the illustrations by Sanna Annukka make this edition so freaking gorgeous!

    Once again I was super excited to read this original fairytale story by Hans Christian Andersen of The Fir Tree. And was also struck by the fun and beautiful illustrations that the illustrator, Sanna Annukka, placed in this beloved classic fairytale. This was quite a quick read (it’s only about 50 pages; half of them being illustrations) but I also read this aloud to my husband again. Something about reading stories out loud brings much more magic and life into stories. Just like when you hear [...]

    I love Hans Christian Andersen so I wanted to read something by him that I had not read yet. The Fir Tree is a cute little story about a fir tree that wants to grow up so bad. He looks around at all the other trees and wants to be as big as they are but thinks he will never get there. However learns the hard way that even though you are grown, there are still obstacles you will have to face. I think this book would be great to read to children to get them to enjoy their childhood. All children w [...]

    'The Fir Tree' by Hans Christian Andersen gets a gorgeous new edition with illustrations by Sanna Annukka. They don't make the story any happier, but they add some beauty to the pages.The story is of a fir tree living in the woods. At first he is not tall enough to be chosen and resents the rabbits who jump over him. He wants more and yearns for it. Eventually, he grows tall enough and is chosen as a Christmas tree and thinks his life will only get better and better. This is not what happens.It' [...]

    The Fir Tree is a fairy tale by Hans Christian Anderson. It is a story about the life of a fir tree who is always looking towards a great future. I liked the way this story encouraged me to think more positively of the present than longing for future happiness.I found the character of the fir tree interesting because it developed from being like a little child, wanting to be older, to realising that it should have enjoyed life while it was young. This becomes especially obvious near the end when [...]

    We discovered that this was not a great Christmas book. Though it is about a fir tree, and Christmas does occur, my kids and I found this story a bit too melancholy and depressing for our liking. There is certainly something to be learned from the fir tree, his lack of contentment, and then his too late reflection on the past. But not a great bedtime story. Oops.

    This is a nice fairy tale if only very sad and melancholic. It presents a very important life lesson: even though it might appear that what other have is so much better, that may only be appearance; take comfort in what you do have and rejoice in every thing day.Very appropriate for this time of year.:)

    Such a sad tale about the life of a Christmas tree and a cautionary story about the dangers of wanting to growing up too fast, and thinking the grass is greener on the other side Best line ever: "I heard it on my happiest evening, but I did not know then how happy I was."

    This book is a wonderful story that teaches its readers to enjoy being young while you can, because you cannot relive the past. A charming holiday tale. =)

    This is one of the most beautiful classic editions I have had in a while. The book The Fir Tree' by Hans Christian Andersen is a beautiful short story about a fir tree that is living in the woods. He is still rather small so hasn't been chosen. He wants to grow up and be a big strong tree with all his might. The new editions is beautiful while the story is not. This fir tree yearns and yearns to grow up. Eventually the fir tree grows tall enough to be picked as a Christmas tree. Unfortunately ar [...]

    È il racconto dell’insoddisfazione di sé anche nella più giovane età.Un giovanissimo abete attende con impazienza di lasciare le lande desolate e innevate del nord Europa per vedere con i propri occhi ciò che gli uccelli migratori gli hanno raccontato, trovando rifugio tra i suoi rami: del mare e di altre meraviglie, di lustrini e calore domestico. Essere così piccolo rispetto agli altri alberi della foresta gli crea qualche imbarazzo: quando sarà finalmente il suo turno?internostorie/r [...]

    The story is one of Andersen's simpler fables, not much plot, and so not as well known as some. The illustrations by Burkert are lovely, but there are not enough of them to justify this edition. I do recommend that you read whatever edition you can find, even if it's just the Gutenberg Project ebook.

    Andersen puts on display a healthy share of the hopeless fatalism he's known for with this haunting tale of a young tree who wastes his present longing for a better future that never comes.
