Tales of Hans Christian Andersen


From an assortment of surprise packages comes four very special gifts…  the gifts of storyteller Hans Christian Andersen to the children of the world.  Out of a bright birthday box steps ’The Steadfast Tin Soldier’ to tell of his undying love for a paper dancing doll.  A dilapidated old crate yields the comic tale of ’The Swineherd’ who spurns a royal princess, and from a basket of eggs comes the well-loved story of ’The Ugly Duckling.’ The quartet of tales concludes with the touching romance of ’The Little Mermaid’ who loves a human being…  the story discovered in an ancient sea chest.

Run Time:  45-50 Minutes       Appropriate for Grades 3 and up.
