A timeless classic, the tale of Thumbelina – adapted from the original work by Hans Christian Andersen – invites you to follow the adventures of a delicate little girl who was born in a wondrous flower. Her journey through the heart of nature is punctuated with enchanting surprise encounters. From the ugly toad to the frightening stag beetle, the mole living in the dark and the pretty wounded swallow, the heroine meets many characters along the way and cleverly overcomes each obstacle thanks to her courage and optimism. An ode to the plant world, an invitation to observe the infinitely small and the poetic beauty of things – even and especially the tiny things – around us, to take care of others and nature, in keeping with the four seasons. In this first volume, discover Thumbelina’s first steps on a maiden journey through fields, streams, skies and forests.
