The only thing lacking in this excellent unabridged narration of a Hans Christian Andersen classic is a more attractive color cover to invite kids to sample: Wetzel's narrative style is dramatic and enlightening and provides the highlights of an excellent, classic short story. Look beyond the black and white liner to receive an excellent story revived. -- Midwest Book Review

From the Inside Flap
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.
