Sylvia Long's Thumbelina by Sylvia Long

The story of the thumb-size girl and her adventures comes to life with the vibrancy of Sylvia Long's distinctive illustrations. The familiar cast of characters - including a calculating mother toad, a greedy beetle, a demanding mouse, and a mole with marriage on his mind - are all included in this lush, beautifully rendered book.

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
