They happened upon this statue........the world famous story teller Hans Christian Andersen
It was given to my mother for perfect attendance in Sunday School. They corrected the name because they originally were giving it to her sister Jean who according to stories handed down was not the best at going to Sunday School......or shall we say she went to the church, she just didn't go inside! Look at the year..........
The book does not have all HC's stories, only 5 of them
and there were a few illustrations
I have no idea when the book was published but obviously it was before 1926.
It is a small treasure for our family and who knew when it was given to me, that I would marry a great Dane by the last name of
