In this hip hilarious retelling, Hans Christian Andersen's beloved fairy tale is reimagined by an all-star celebrity cast. Among the writers are Academy Award-winning and -nominated actors and actresses and other personalities from the worlds of entertainment and popular culture. Each celebrity contribution is illustrated by artists who have created some of the most treasured classics of children's literature-Caldecott Medal and Honor winners, Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonists, New Yorker cover contributors, and many other esteemed talents. The contributors' creative gifts are outshined only by their generosity: All of the royalties from this book have been donated to Starbright, an innovative charitable foundation committed to improving the lives of seriously ill children. And on the enclosed compact disc, the book leaps into life-with music, sound effects, an original song, and all the humor and dramatic flair of the celebrity authors' finest performances -in a one-of-a-kind audio event for the entire family.
