Classic fairy tales and birthday cake

What do classic fairy tales and birthday cake have to do with Caloundra City Libraries?  They're part of the worldwide celebrations being held to mark the bicentenary of the birth of the Danish storyteller and poet Hans Christian Andersen.

Caloundra City Mayor, Don Aldous, said Caloundra City Libraries will be celebrating this special birthday with storytelling sessions at all library branches next week using some of Hans Christian Andersen's tales.

"Hans Christian Andersen's stories, which include The Emperor's New Clothes, The Princess and the Pea, Thumbelina, The Little Mermaid and The Ugly Ducking to name a few, are famous all over the world," Cr Aldous said.

"These stories have been recounted from generation to generation and continue to be well-loved favourites among the young and young at heart."
