Written by Hans Christian Andersen
Retold and Illustrated by JooHee Yoon

There were once five-and-twenty tin soldiers. They were all brothers, born of the same old tin spoon. … All looked exactly alike except one. He looked a little different as he had been cast last of all. The tin was short, so he had only one leg. …. But just you see, he'll be the remarkable one.

  • So begins Andersen's classic tale of good and evil; purity and personality; fate and grace.
  • In this boldly-illustrated contemporary retelling, Yoon takes on the harshness and poignancy of the story, leaving readers with the sense that nothing is ever lost—it just changes shape and continues anew.
  • The Steadfast Tin Soldier is the first story Andersen wrote without a folktale source or literary model, so it stands as a completely original work of the imagination, which changed the fairytale genre for all time.
