Thumbelina finished off our unit on "little folk" in folklore. The story is enchanting and well-loved, if mostly familiar to the K-2s. This version is illustrated by Brian Pinkney who gives our heroine a bit of color which is a nice change from the usual pale white fairy tale characters. The longing for a child is a common theme amongst this category of stories.
