  1. I would have preferred to read your ending when I a child of 6 or 7 …I can remember being upset at the time….but there I suppose it was preparing me for life…..

  2. Surely the original ending was happy? The solider and the paper doll were together, his heart remainded as did her spangle (tho’ a little black)- melded together.

    I watched Disney’s The Little Mermaid this week,I wonder if you consider that a ‘happy ending'(Ariel gets her voice back and wins the Prince and lives in the human world)I suggest Andersen knew his stuff with the original tales…

  3. Les,

    Miss Everitt must have read that story to us. I always hated it!


    My stories have to have a happy ending!
