Hans Christian Andersen

In noticing the Google homepage logo commemorating the birthday of  Danish storyteller Hans Christian Andersen today (click the logo to see a different one–there are five total), I –of course–googled Mr. Andersen and was reminded of  so many wonderful tales as well as amazed at how many of them I was not aware are part of  his work.

I knew The Little Mermaid and The Ugly Duckling were Andersen classics, but had forgotten that he also penned Thumbelina(one of my girlie’s absolute favorites), The Princess and the Pea and The Emperor’s New Suit –just to name a few.

I’m such a literary junkie that I had to commemorate this writer and send some of you walking down memory lane with me–do tell me your favorite Hans Christian Andersen tales…
