Fairy Tale Friday- The Philosopher’s Stone

No, no. This isn’t The Philosopher’s Stone that you might think it could be. This is Hans Christian Andersen’s version. It’s all about a wise man who lives in a giant tree called the Tree of the Sun. He has five kids including four sons and a daughter. The daughter is blind. The wise man’s sons go out to look for the philosopher’s stone. Each son goes out to look for the philosopher’s stone. Each son fails. They are either tricked by the Devil or loses sight of their quest. The girl, the least expected, does a few good deeds and is able to get her brothers to return to her and her father. The story is all about having faith and belief.
