Fairytales by Hans Christian Anderson

Postby Gail Allen » Mon Apr 02, 2018 9:23 pm

Today is the birthday of one of the most well known authors of fairy tales in the world.
Most of us have read at least some of the fairytales he was written, or watched movies made based on them.

They are so ingrained in culture that many people might not even realize they know them. But if you've ever read or watched movie adaptations of The Little Mermaid, The Ugly Duckling, The Little Match Girl, The Emperor's New Clothes or The Snow Queen and many more, then you know a fairytale by Hans Christian Anderson.
My favourite is probably The Nightingale.

But which ones do you know and do you have a favourite? And why do you like that one in particular?
Thank you Cassie for the signature!

I love the Little Match Girl, probably because it was the first of his stories I’ve read. Also, it was the one that the most deeply resonated with me. It’s a beautiful story.
