Happy Birthday Hans Christian Andersen!

Hans Christian Andersen was an author born in Odense, Denmark on April 2, 1805.

Hans Christian Andersen (April 2, 1805 – August 4, 1875)

He is well-known today for his memorable fairy tales. “The Little Mermaid” and “The Snow Queen,” two of my favorites, are among his most popular fictions.

For years, his birthday has also heralded the celebration of International Children’s Book Day. A fitting tribute!

As part and parcel with his story-telling, Andersen was also an adept paper cutter, snipping into being many silhouettes as well as characters for his tales.
