Here are the first four in a new translation-"The Tinder Box," probably the finest Andersen story to read aloud or tell with its robust humor, "The Princess and the Pea," full of gentle 1 irony, "Little Clans and Big Claus,' and "Little Ida's Flowers," a tale of poetic insight. Another new little volume is illustrated by Pamela Bianca. It is the story of the "Little Mermaid" translated by M. R. James. Many people have rewritten the "Litlle Mermaid." but Mr. James, an English scholar, who loves Denmark and knows the Danish language well, has retold it almost as if Andersen had written it in our own language. Mrs. John Christiansen is loaning the library a Danish edition of Andersen's fairy tales with the original illustrations. Program Informal.
