Editorial Reviews

Review

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 --This text refers to the Audio Cassette edition.

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. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a beautiful book, a real work of art and color. The entertaining story can teach children some great life lessons - such as the importance of random acts of kindness, the necessity of "going with the flow", and also, the rewards of taking care of nature and each other. A joy to read!

Format: Hardcover
This was one of my favourite books when I was a very little girl, I read it about 100 times and I still miss it (Mummy reckoned I was too old for that book when I was about 8 or 9 and put it in a special bookshelf and even to this day, if THIS version were to be released on Kindle I would download it and read it quite a few times
