Synopsis

Sylvia Long's Thumbelina by Sylvia Long

From best-selling artist Sylvia Long comes an enchanting version of the classic tale of Thumbelina by Hans Christian Andersen. 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.

Reviews

SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL.. .[C]hildren girls in particular will undoubtedly delight in the happy ending where a gatefold reveals the flower-filled wedding of Thumbelina and her prince.
