Classics Illustrated Junior #514: The Steadfast Tin Soldier
The Steadfast Tin Soldier is one of Hans Christian Andersen's most romantic tales. The Steadfast Tin Soldier tells the story of a one-legged brave tin soldier who suffers a terrible fate, all for the love of a beautiful dancing doll. Plagued by a jealous Jack-in-the-Box, the toy solider is sent flying out the window to the street below, where an adventure carries him even further from his love. Throughout his ordeal, the soldier remains steadfast on his one leg, ever true to his beloved little dancer. Beautifully illustrated, this comic graphic fairy tale captures the imagination of readers of all ages and inspires a love of reading.
NOTE: On page 10, the illustrator placed the conversation bubbles upside down to reflect the predicament of the soldier.
