Little Thumbelina
Loosely adapted from Hans Christian Andersen
© 2016

Born from a flower and bloomed into a perfectly formed, if somewhat tiny, human child, Thumbelina approaches her world with an unjustified confidence that soon finds her lost and alone is a large, strange, and challenging world of enormous toads, birds, fish, insects, and rodents. As her mother searches the forest, Thumbelina stumbles ever deeper into her mysterious big adventure.
