Hans Christian Andersen's Thumbelinaby Lauren Mills, Hans Christian Andersen, Dennis Nolan
The story of the little girl so named because of her tiny size is one of the most popular and enduring fairy tales of all time. Children can identify with the plucky heroine who uses cleverness instead of size and strength to make her own way in the wide, wide world. Lauren Mills's delicate watercolors create a miniature land where a walnut shell covered with violet petals serves as a bed, a leaf becomes a suitable umbrella, and field mice and birds are Thumbelina's unlikely companions. Enchanting details drawn from nature bring this imaginative story to life.
Author Biography: Lauren Mills is the talented author and illustrator of many original tales such as Fairy Wings, winner of the Golden Kite Award for Illustration, and The Rag Coat. She lives with her husband, artist and author Dennis Nolan, and their daughter, Evie, in Massachusetts.
