A Hand For Hans
Happy birthday to one of the
world's greatest storytellers

April 2nd marked the bicentennial of the birth of Hans Christian Andersen, arguably one of the most prolific writers of fairy tales in history.

I've been a fan since my youth after seeing the movie starring Danny Kaye, and realizing this was a story about the guy who wrote all those stories I was so familiar with as a child.

There's a great article on the NPR website about the event, along with an audio file that includes a retelling of two Andersen tales.

Creative thinking at its best.

Thanks for visiting and leaving a link, Jacob. I liked the site a lot -- especially your entry about the landmine-detecting plants. What a creative solution!
