Thumbelina is a story about a little girl born from a barley seed who goes through many adventures. She escapes from the frogs 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.
But little Thumbelina has a big kind heart, which helps her to save herself and save a swallow, who takes her to warm lands, where Thumbelina falls in love with the king of elves.
