The Darning-Needle

H. C. Andersen

This story was written in 1846. The story is full of humor. Once upon a time was a darning-needle who thought herself so fine that she fancied she must be fit for embroidery. Fingers seized her round the body and she said: "Don’t let me fall! If you do I shall never be found again, I am so very fine!” The fingers then placed the point of the needle against the cook’s slipper because there was a crack in the upper leather, which had to be sewn together. But darning-needle said: “What a coarse work! I shall never get through. I shall break!" - and finally broke herself. After that the adventure of the broken darning-needle was begun. Read it till the end to know what will happen to darning-needle.
