Thumbeline Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One night, as Thumbeline lay sleeping, an ugly toad hopped through the window and carried her away. So begins the first of many adventures for tiny Thumbeline, a pretty little girl no bigger than your thumb. Among one of Hans Christian Andersen's earliest stories, "Thumbeline" has been enchantingly illustrated by Lisbeth Zwerger. The internationally acclaimed artist depicts Thumbeline's charming miniature world and captures all the dangers and delights of this satisfying story of virtue and unselfishness rewarded.

Synopsis:

The adventures of a tiny girl no bigger than a thumb and her many animal friends.

Lisbeth Zwerger was born in Vienna, where she later studied at the Academy of Art. Internationally renowned as one of the finest contemporary illustrators of children's literature, Zwerger chose "The Gift of the Magi" as the first American story she illustrated.
Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875) was born in Odense, Denmark to a poor family. He left home as a 14-year-old to seek his fortune at the theatre in Copenhagen. Andersen began writing plays and poetry before he left for Copenhagen, but it was not until 1835 that he published the first of the fairytales that would bring him international renown. Since then, his over 200 fairytales have enjoyed undiminished popularity, providing the basis for favorite American interpretations such as Disney's The Little Mermaid.
