Written around 150 years ago by Hans Christian Andersen, a Danish author, The Last Dream of the Old Oak Tree is a story of the seasons of life that ends on a note of hope and gratitude. The Last Dream of the Old Oak Tree has not lost any of its poignant beauty for readers today. Malaysian artist, Chooi Ling Keiong, has interpreted Andersen’s story with her wonderfully realistic art work that bring to life the story’s simple yet profound message. This version produced by OyezBooks has been modernised and simplified for today’s children but it is also a story that will resonate with adults.

Anderson’s own life was like a fairy tale. He was born into a poor family and his father died when he was only eleven. He didn’t know what he wanted to do. It was only when he was in his forties that his fairy tales were recognised. He is probably best know for The Little Mermaid, The Ugly Duckling, The Emperor’s New Clothes and the Little Match Girl.
