Thumbelina is a story about a little girl born from a barley seed, and who encounters many adventures. She escapes from the frogs in her birth pond, but falls directly into the claws of a beetle, who soon leaves her, and the poor girl is left alone in the cold dark forest. Then she meets a field mouse who introduces her to a mole, and this meeting almost turns into a wedding.  Fate has prepared for Thumbelina many adventures and encounters, from which she will take her lessons. Little Thumbelina has a big kind heart, which helps her to save herself through it all, and during her travels, save a swallow. He in turn takes her to warm lands, where Thumbelina falls in love with the king of elves, and he with her.

Hans Christian Andersen

Hans Christian Andersen (2 April 1805 – 4 August 1875) was a Danish author. Although a prolific writer of plays, travelogues, novels, and poems, he is best remembered for his literary fairy tales.
Andersen’s fairy tales, consisting of 156 stories across nine volumes and translated into more than 125 languages, have become culturally embedded in the West’s collective consciousness, readily accessible to children, but presenting lessons of virtue and resilience in the face of adversity for mature readers as well. His stories have inspired ballets, plays, and animated and live-action films.
