Thumbelina was written by Hans Christian Anderson (1805-1895) in 1835. The story was highly popularized by Danny Kaye singing the Frank Loesser song “Thumbelina” and we know the story more today as Thumbelina.

There is a wonderful recent translation from the original Danish by Diane Crone Flank and Jeffrey Flank of “The Stories of Hans Christian Anderson,” Duke University Press, Durham N.C. and London, 2005, ISBN, 0-8223-3693-6. It is from the story of Thumbelina in this book that I took the inspiration for the illustrations here presented.
