Summary
Thumbelina is as pretty and delicate as the flower she was born in, and no bigger than her mother's thumb. She grows older, but no taller in their happy home until she awakens one morning to a terrible surpise: an ugly mother toad has kidnapped her and wants Thumbelina to marry her even more awful toad son. So begins Hans Christian Andersen's classic story of hardship, adventure, and friendship in a wild and wonderous world filled with helpful fish, braggy June bugs, and a mysterious mole. Thumbelina may be small, but her life is full of big adventures in this beautiful picture book illustrated with the modern paintings of Kelly Vivanco
Summary
Offers an adaptation of the classic tale in which a beautiful girl no bigger than a thumb is kidnapped by a toad and makes many animal friends as she seeks the perfect prince
