fairy tale review - Little Ida's Flowers

Little Ida hears a rumor that flowers dance during the night.  Little Ida worries about her dying flowers so she gets up to watch them in the night.  She finds all the flowers from her home dancing about and the flowers from the palace even come to dance.  Ida goes to bed and in the morning she buries her dead flowers with her little Norwegian cousins who shoot arrows.

My thoughts include:
  1. How did Hans's brain come up with so many words for this story?
  2. I thought about how this was the entertainment in 1835.  I am so happy Hans's fairy tales were not my only source of fiction as a child.
  3. Why does the last paragraph introduce the two Norwegian cousins?
  4. This fairy tale was long and boring.
