Never Published Fairy Tale Discovered

Hans Christian Andersen, author of The Ugly Duckling

Do you know who H.C Andersen was?

He was the author of the famous fairy tales like The Ugly Duckling, Emperor’s New Clothes, Thumblina and the Little Mermaid.

Recently, a fairy tale titled ‘Tallow Candle’, hand written by Andersen, has been found at the bottom of a box in the National Archives,near the Danish writer’s home city. It was probably written by Anderson in the 1820s. Almost 200 years ago!!

The tale ‘Tallow Candle’ is about a candle that becomes dirty and is neglected until its inner beauty is recognised following which it is ignited. Hope we get to read it soon.
