Once upon a time there was a woman who was sad because she had no children. One day she planted a magic seed and from the seed grew a flower. Inside the flower was a tiny, exquisite girl no bigger than the woman's thumb. Her name was Thumbelina.
The two lived happily together until an ugly old toad snuck in and snatched Thumbelina away. So began Thumbelina's adventures in a world full of dangers for little people. Luckily, size isn't all that matters, and Thumbelina's kindness and courage bring her long-lasting happiness.About the Author:
About the Author: Hans Christian Andersen was a Danish author. Although a prolific writer of plays, travelogues, novels, and poems, Andersen is best remembered for his fairy tales. Andersen's popularity is not limited to children; his stories, called eventyr in Danish, express themes that transcend age and nationality. Andersen's fairy tales, which have been translated into more than 125 languages, have become culturally embedded in the West's collective consciousness, readily accessible to children, but presenting lessons of virtue and resilience in the face of adversity for mature readers as well. Some of his most famous fairy tales include Thumbelina, "The Emperor's New Clothes", "The Little Mermaid", "The Nightingale", "The Snow Queen", "The Ugly Duckling", "Thumbelina", and many more. His stories have inspired ballets, animated and live-action films, and plays. About the Artist: Lin Utzon is a qualified art-craft worker and textile designer. Her art is wide-ranging and extends from bone china collections for Rosendahl and Royal Copenhagen, to scenography and costumes for the Royal Danish Ballet, architectural embellishments for Jørn Utzon s church in Bagsværd and Volvo s headquarters in Gothenburg, among others. Her poetic style is often inspired by nature and there is a distinct Northern flavor to all her works of art.
