The Sandman, such a wonderful story, written in many ways. I have chose one that is in a very old book of mine.

The Sandman by Hans Christian Andersen
as written in the
Children's Treasure Book
There is no one in the whole world who knows so many stories as the Sandman. Oh ! his are delightful stories.
        In the evening, when children are sitting quietly at the table, or on their little stools, he takes off his shoes, comes softly upstairs, opens the doorway gently, and all on a sudden throws dust into the children's eyes. he then glides behind them, and breathes lightly, very lightly upon their necks and their heads become oh, so heavy! But it does them no harm, the the Sandman means it kindly; he only wants the children to be quiet when they are in bed.
      When the children are asleep, the Sandman sits down upon the bed; he is gaily dressed, and his coat is of silk; but of what colour it is impossible to say, for it seems now green, now red, now blue, according to the light. Under each arm he holds an umbrella; one, which has pictures painted on it he holds over the good children: it makes them have the most delightful dreams all night long. The other, which has nothing on it, he holds over naughty children, so that they sleep heavily, and awake in the morning without having dreamed at all.
       But now I will let you hear what stories the Sandman told to a little boy who was called Hialmar, to whom he came every evening for a whole week through. There are seven stories altogether for as you know each week has seven days and seven nights. Tonight I am putting the whole of Monday and Tuesday into print. here at Theatre Show, page 43. http://www.diddilydeedotsdreamland.zoomshare.com/
