By Hans-Christian Andersen; Illustrated by Elsa Beskow

Elsa Beskow's charming illustrations bring to life this classic Hans Christian Andersen tale of a thumb-sized girl who has big adventures. 

Thumbelina is so small she sleeps in a walnut shell bed with a rose petal sheet. One day, a toad steals her away from her home and keeps her captive on a lilypad, until some fish set her free to find her way through the countryside. 

Will Thumbelina ever find a new home among friends? 

Available in English for the first time in thirty years, this beautiful book will be a wonderful addition to the shelves of Elsa Beskow admirers everywhere. 

Elsa Beskow (1874-1953) is the most popular children's illustrator in Sweden, where her picture books have been known and loved for over a century.

Recommended for 4 - 7 years.
