Fairy tale stamps
The Singapore Philatelic Museum has put up an exhibition of Hans' stories, commemorating the year with the release of four stamps on his popular stories Thumbelina, The Ugly Duckling, The Emperor's New Clothes and Little Mermaid. It's the first time that Singapore has featured a foreign celebrity on its stamp.
Interesting snippets about the author are displayed around the exhibition. The exhibition has been made unique with a storybook corner, a large cut-out of the Emperor which can be dressed by visitors, and tracing Thumbelina moving through the flowers, as in her tale.
