Hans Christian Andersen Award
My favorite book author is Hans Christian Andersen. He is Danish and was born on April 2, 1805. He is known world wide for his fairy tales. Some of his most famous stories are The Little Mermaid, The Little Match Girl, and The Ugly Duckling. Even though his stories are children’s stories, many adults also find his stories entertaining. I was 18 when I bought a book that had 100 of his stories. His stories teach us about the harsh times in life and also teach us valuable lessons. I personally like his stories because they make me think about morals in our life. His stories are different from many modern day children’s stories. A lot of children’s stories have happy endings. Hans Christian Andersen’s stories have taught me that a happy ending isn’t always what makes a good story. A lot of his stories are based off of stories that have happened to him in his love life. The Little Mermaid was a love letter by Hans Christian Andersen that he wrote to symbolize his love for a man named Edvard Collin. Some Scholars thought that Andersen was bisexual. He is such a great author that there is even a Hans Christian Andersen Award. He has also inspired other famous authors such as Kenneth Grahame and A.A. Milne. The International Children’s Book Day is a holiday that is celebrated in honor of him. It is celebrated on his birthday.
