A fresh translation of the classic fairy tale of courage and a sister’s love

A king has eleven sons and one daughter-Elisa. When he marries an evil woman, she turns the princes into swans and banishes the princess from the palace.

After years of loneliness and sorrow, Elisa finds her beloved brothers again. But the spell that has been cast on them is powerful, and the price of returning her brothers to human form might be too much for her to bear.

The Wild Swans is the story of a sister’s love for her brothers- and her fight to save them, whatever it may cost.

This volume also includes The Nightingale, Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fairy tale of song and salvation.
