A fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen presented with modern illustrations. It’s a story about love at first sight. When the one-legged tin soldier saw the paper ballerina and assumed she was just like him, with one leg, falls in love with her. It’s a story of love, chance and fate.
The original; not doctored
... but kind of sad in the ending; glad I read it on my own first instead of having first read it to the children. Sad-ending tale with a useful moral I might understand; this one's, though, seems to be "bad things happen to good people for no reason whatsoever", so I'd rather my children instead listen to anything in the very large audio library put out by Jim Weiss - those are also classics, AND fun.
It was a great story to tell to a child
The book is so good but at the end it is so sad
