Overview

It’s not easy being small, but in Brad Sneed’s lovely new adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s Thumbelina, at least life is full of adventure. Soon after being born from a fiery red flower, Thumbelina is kidnapped from home and pursued by many suitors, including a horrible toad, a bumbling beetle, and a grumpy mole–until the plucky heroine finds a true love who fits her just right.
Sneed’s rich, detailed watercolors are a true standout, illustrating the animals and natural world with remarkable realism and vibrancy. The story, lighthearted and lively, has a simple text that keeps the elegant flavor of the original tale, yet is perfect for a picture book audience.
Brad Sneed’s fresh look at a well-loved fairy tale is simply sumptuous!
