Thumbelina

20180208_105022 (480x640)

There was once an old woman who wanted a daughter more than anything else in the world.

She went to see a witch who gave her a seed to plant. The seed grew into a beautiful flower, and when the flower opened with a pop! a tiny little girl was sitting in the middle. The girl was no bigger than the woman’s thumb, so she called her Thumbelina and loved her like a daughter.

My review:

I remember hearing this story as a child. A cute little fairy tale, which tells of a tiny girl’s need to fit in … to have a sense of belonging. With a little help from the animals around her, she does indeed find a place to call home. Lovely story.
