A new fairy tale

 

The most read Danish writer, Hans Christian Andersen, was front-page news again. An unknown fairy tale of his, The Candlestick, has been found in an archive, hidden among a lot of other papers. This fairy tale was one of a very young Hans Christian's first attempts at this genre and it's not even close to being his best. Nonetheless the news went around the world, showing just how popular he still is.
