Thumbelina

Thumbelina by Susan Jeffers

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...A beautiful version of a classic tale with illustrations by Susan Jeffers...
