    Hi guys~

    Anderson made fairy tales tell the story of his own life <---Does it make sense? ( I was just trying to say that the fairy tales he made are based on his personal experiences)

    Anderson made (up) fairytales that/which tell his own life story.

    That sounds fine. One minor point: in the UK the author is invariably referred to as 'Hans Anderson' - Anderson alone could be an English name, and sounds odd in the context. Of course if this is a formal text, and his first name has been stated sufficiently, then this does not apply.

    This sounds fine to me: it suggests that he adapted the stories a bit so that they told the story of his life.
