Luminous illustrations by Bagram Ibatoulline combine with Brian Alderson s wry retelling for a gorgeous gift edition of a well loved tale.
A childless woman visits a witch who gives her a barleycorn and hidden in its bloom is a tiny girl. For one so small, Thumbelina s life is full of misadventures as she floats through the pages like a wisp on the wind, encountering kind and unkind creatures in succession. But old Mrs. Toad with her 'rek kek kek' and the alarming Man in Gray cannot crush her spirits, and Thumbelina s gentle concern for a winged soul in need paves the way to her freedom and happiness. In a warm, witty retelling accessible to younger children, Hans Christian Andersen s tale of a girl no bigger than a thumb is lavishly illustrated by Bagram Ibatoulline. Showcasing art evocative of Victorian storybooks with a touch of the dreamlike Rousseau this is truly a breathtaking edition of a treasured classic.
