The Jumper

H. C. Andersen

Hans Christian Andersen was a Danish author best known for writing children's stories including "The Little Mermaid" and "The Ugly Duckling." Andersen achieved worldwide fame for writing innovative and influential fairy tales. He was the first Danish author to emerge from the lowest class. He enjoyed fame as a novelist, dramatist, and poet, but his fairy tales are his greatest contribution to world literature. The Jumper tells us a story of the Flea, the Grasshopper, and the Skipjack who decided to find out who will jump higher. They arranged a real competition and the king, who thought it would be unfair to jump for nothing, promised the hand of his daughter to the participant, who would win. All three competitors prepared to jump and introduced themselves, but how will the story end, you should find out for yourself! Get ready for an amusing and unexpected final!
