How will tiny Thumbelina find her way home to Mother? In this fresh twist on Hans Christian Andersen’s much-loved fairy tale, our modern, empowered Thumbelina will remind everyone who feels small that they too can be strong.
“Those familiar with the story as well as newcomers will be delighted by the small protagonist who conquers fears, overcomes harrowing encounters, stands up for herself, devises clever ideas to extricate herself from trouble, and emerges triumphant…The retelling is much enhanced by beautiful paintings in a charming, dreamy folkloric style that emphasize Thumbelina’s diminutiveness.” —Kirkus Reviews
