Joe & Justine With Hans Christian Andersen

The Ugly Duckling

Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875) is best known for his children's stories such as The Emperor's New Clothes, The Little Mermaid and The Ugly Duckling. Like the Alice in Wonderland sculpture nearby, Hans Christian Andersen is meant to be climbed on. The two favorite spots for climbing are on top of the open book displaying the opening lines of The Ugly Duckling and on the freestanding duck. The memorial cost $75,000, contributed in part by Danish and American schoolchildren. The remainder was raised by the Danish-American Women's Association to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Andersen's birth. During the summer months, children flock to the statue for the storytelling program. Info

This was taken in one of the attractions that tourist want to see in Central Park NYC. Justine cried when i put her next to the statue but after I gave her dum-dum pop she settled down.
Central Park is a public greenspace and park in the heart of Manhattan in New York City, with approximately twenty-five million visitors each year, it is the most visited urban park in the United States.

Hans Christian Andersen has made so many children of all ages and all times happy with his enduring tales. I was so enthralled by his tales as related to me by my mother when I was still a boy. I love all his stories and I'm sure all people of the world share the same fascination I have with his stories. Thanks for the fascinating post. God bless you all always.
